I keep hearing people say. . .I’m just looking for the right opportunity.
More often than not. . .most people aren’t looking for an opportunity. . .they’re waiting for it to knock on the door and say “here I am.”
It doesn’t work that way.
Thomas Edison, the inventor, once said:
“Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.”
Sometimes an opportunity is right before us but we’ve been so blinded by our circumstances that we can’t see the obvious.
God promised Abraham and Sarah a son. After a number of years, Sarah decided she was going to help God. So Sarah gave Hagar, her hand maiden, to Abraham and she bore Ishmael, a son.
After that, there was trouble in the tents. In fact, Sarah asked Abraham to kick Hagar and Ishmael out of the camp.
