Can’t Do It All? Do What You Can


In a time-starved, hectic paced world, leaders can be pinched even more so.

Some days it seems like, even though we had a solid plan to govern our day, the day ran us.

Have you ever had those times, where at the day’s end, you wonder “What on earth did I accomplish today?” Those days that nothing went according to plan? That your contributions and influence were never felt?

But if you truly did what you could, made the earnest effort to positively impact others, serve, and give of your time and resources, then you have accomplished a great deal today.

There are times when a farmer wonders what is going on below the surface before they see their crops sprout. Did their planting take? Was the soil prepared correctly? These thoughts can plague us too on certain days.

Dear friends, on those days you need to be assured that you did what you could. Every effort to lead by character and connect with people, even in the slightest and seeming insignificant way, is merely planting a seed for tomorrow’s crops of success.

“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” (Galatians 6:9)
