“Sow your seed in the morning,
and at evening let not your hands be idle,

for you do not know which will succeed,

whether this or that,

or whether both will do equally well.”
~ Ecclesiastes 11:6

Sometimes life presents an opportunity to you.  If you’re like me, you may take your time, think over your options, carefully weigh if this particular opportunity is right for you.

Have you ever done that, only to find out you took so much time to make up your mind that the opportunity was no longer there?

Today’s verse from Ecclesiastes reminds us to keep moving forward, since we truly have no idea which actions will bear the most fruit.  However, if all we are doing is sitting around, considering our next actions, we will guarantee the outcome – nothing.  But if we keep working, we know that eventually something will succeed.

If you have an opportunity before you, weigh the outcome, but don’t take so long you lose your chance.  In short, this verse is telling us that when we have a chance, we should jump at it!
