Better to finish

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.

  1. Hello!

    Like this post. And I agree, manifesting something into reality is better than dreaming.

    But sometimes speaking “I am,” is the first step in attainment. “I will,” keeps accomplishment forever in the future, never to be here with us.

    To me, “I am,” needs to go beyond ego into the realm of beingness. It also needs to be really specific in order for us to accomplish whatever goal we are bringing to mind.

    What do you think?


    1. Joey,

      Good point of clarification here.

      I agree with you.

      For me, these verses spoke to the issue of execution… a matter I work hard to master!

      How’s your life man?
