Opportunity in Today

By Kaimlet on 16-12-2017

Look for the opportunity in today, even if “today” is not quite what you had bargained for. A graduate student had just gotten his first job, a desk job, which he felt – and probably correctly – that was much beneath his talents. He complained to his friend that he did not do pencil-pushing.

His friend was entirely unsympathetic. He just patted him on the back and said to him, “You know, the world is a better place because Michelangelo didn’t say, ‘I don’t do ceilings.”’

So it is. You go through the Bible and Moses didn’t say, “1 don’t do rivers.” Noah didn’t say, “1 don’t do arks.” Ruth didn’t say, “1 don’t do mothers-in-law.” David didn’t say, “1 don’t do giants.”

Paul didn’t say, “I don’t do Gentiles.” Mary Magdalene didn’t say, “1 don’t do feet.” Jesus didn’t say, “1 don’t do crosses.”
