Have you ever started a project, assignment or job with a sudden burst of enthusiasm only to be slowed down by the first obstacle and stopped short of your goal by continual obstacles?
Congratulations, you’re average. But you don’t have to stay that way. Those who rise above the crowd are the ones who go the extra mile while others are relaxing in front of the TV.
The strength of a person’s character and drive to success is determined by whether or not they can finish what they started.
Employees who complete the task are more highly valued than those who, though they make a valiant effort, nevertheless, fail to complete the project.
The One by whom our every effort, thought and action should be measured. . . was a finisher. Should we be any less?
John 4:34 in the New Living Translation says:
“Then Jesus explained: “My nourishment comes from doing the will of God, who sent me, and from finishing his work.”
Not only was Jesus a finisher but he made us that way as well.
