Common English Bible (CEB)

12 Teach us to number out our days so we can have a wise heart. 

I would like to share with you one of my favorite quotes I read a long time ago.  I had something else planned for today but this quote came to me yesterday and I would like to share:


If I were to ask you, ‘‘Where is the richest place in the world?’’ I am sure that some would say the mint in Washington, D.C. Others would say Fort Knox, and others would say the gold and diamond mines that populate the African continent. But all would be wrong.
The richest place in the world is the graveyard! That’s right, the graveyard. In it lie all the people who had great ideas that would have made them wealthy, but they listened instead to some negative person who used the word ‘‘can’t’’ and they believed them. Then they took those great ideas with them to their graves! Their best song . . . unsung! Their best invention . . . undone! Their best book . . . unwritten! Their best speech . . . ungiven! Why? Because they listened to some negative person who used the word ‘‘can’t.’’ Do not, I repeat, do not take your riches with you to your grave!

-Willie Jolley, excerpt from the book, It Only Takes A Minute To Change Your Life

What are you waiting for?  We need you!!  Do you realize that a book idea you may have will help someone laugh, smile, think, or change the direction in their lives?  Do you have a song that’s on your heart, but you’re too scared of the opinions of others?  What about a cure for one of the deadliest diseases in our land?  Do you have a play that will help someone?  Do you have a blog, an act, a style, a program to help young people?  The real question is, and my Pastor said this in church years ago: “What job or void would we have to fill in the event of your death?”  Will you be missed or easily forgotten? What are YOU waiting for????   The hardest part is starting.  WE NEED YOU!!!  YOU MAY BE THE REVOLUTION OR CHANGE THAT’S NEEDED FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS!!!
