Faith Like a Turtle

February 7, 2019

๐Ÿ† Slow and steady wins the race


๐Ÿข๐Ÿ‡ "The Tortoise and the Hare" is one ofย Aesop's Fables. The story concerns aย Hareย who ridicules a slow-movingย Tortoise. Tired of the Hare's arrogant behavior, the Tortoise challenges him to a race. The hare soon leaves the tortoise behind and, confident of winning, takes a nap midway through the race. When the Hare awakes however, he finds that his competitor, crawling slowly but steadily, has arrived before him. (source: wikipedia.org)

๐Ÿ’ก When a new project idea comes to mind, I'm similar to the hare, full of eagerness, emotional hype, gusto, and zeal. But after time, if the goal seems out of reach with the finish line not in sight, I'm tempted towards procrastination and to stop in my tracks.

๐ŸŒฑ I've discovered faithfulness is not dependent on my feelings, since my emotions can be an unstable gauge to measure by. Stewardship takes perseverance and dedication, a conscious development of my character. I have to choose to sow into the areas I want to see growth in, and sometimes it requires lots of grit, patience, and a heart of thanksgiving. I have to be like a turtle and keep putting one foot in front of the other.


๐Ÿ“– If you care for your orchard, youโ€™ll enjoy its fruit; if you honor your boss, youโ€™ll be honored. (Proverbs 27:18 Message)
