Reading in Ecclesiastes this morning I came across these words, “The end of a matter is better than its beginning, and patience is better than pride.”
A couple of thoughts:
- These words speak to the idea of execution/completion.
- There is likely to be a spirit of pride that comes with the words, “I will”, or “I am.”
- Through patience and hard work one can say, “I have,” and that is better; better because of what wisdom gained through the process of creating, and better because a completed project is better than an idea (in most cases).
Now go with patience and finish what you’ve started.
