Mr. Meant To has a comrade,
And his name is Didn’t Do;
Have you ever chanced to meet them?
Did they ever call on you?
These two fellows live together
In the house of Never Win;
And I’m told that it is haunted
By the ghost of Might Have Been.
We need to take advantage of our opportunities. We need to be working hard in the kingdom. How many people need the gospel? How many people need a word of encouragement? How many good things did we mean to do yesterday?
Paul said, “Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time” (Col. 4:5). We must take advantage of our opportunities. Jesus “went about doing good” (Acts 10:38), and Paul said, “Have this mind in you” (Phil. 2:4). Thus, we need to be going about doing good, and rid ourselves of Mr. Meant To and Mr. Didn’t Do.
“Wherefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labor is not vain in the Lord” (1 Cor. 15:58).
Think About It!
Have A Great Coming Year!
