Write to Joyce
“No one, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the Kingdom of God.”- Luke 9:62, WEB
Starting a certain undertaking is often easier than finishing it through. When we start a task, we may be full of enthusiasm, full of great expectations for the result of our labors.
Somewhere along the way though, we may get impatient. When we encounter unforseen difficulties, our hearts are dismayed and we quickly give up.
Sooner or later, we find another goal worth pursuing and we merely repeat the process, giving up just when we were about to achieve our goal, turning back just when we’re about to realize our dream.
If only we have resolved from the very beginning never to give up. If only we have given our full commitment instead of merely following our fleeting excitement.
There are of course times when we must realize that trying to pursue a certain course has already become futile. But more often than not, we make it futile because we have never given our best at all.
After discerning the dreams that are really worth taking, let us resolve to give our very best to it. Let us practice giving our all, devoting our full commitment. It is only by such a kind of perseverance that we are able to prove how much we really value our dreams.
“Real love is demanding. I would fail in my mission if I did not tell you so. Love demands a personal commitment to the will of God.” – Pope John Paul II
