Thought for the day…

As I was driving to work the other day, I came up with this.

Some things work. Some things don’t. Don’t be afraid to pull the pin on those that don’t. Learn. Then move on.

Sometimes we try to hang on to things hoping that they’ll change. Maybe we’re afraid to move on because we don’t know what’s coming or where we’ll end up. Perhaps we keep doing things out of habit, becuase that’s how we’ve always done them. Or you invested plenty of time/money/effort into something, so you’re reluctant to let it go. But don’t be afraid to pull the pin on those things that haven’t worked out as planned. Whether it’s personal, business, within the church or your local tennis club, don’t be afraid to pull the pin and move on. We only fail if we don’t give something a go.

It reminds me of the scripture in Matt 10:14 And whoever will not receive you nor hear your words, when you depart from that house or city, shake off the dust from your feet.

In the context of this scripture it’s talking about preaching the gospel. But I like the lesson at the end. As you move forward, you don’t take anger, hurt or resentment with you. Don’t allow offense or bitterness to creep in.

You put on that new man, you renew your mind and you move forward with peace, joy and love in your heart.

If things haven’t worked out as planned, shake the dust off your feed and move on. It will sure save you a lot of stress if you do!
