As the small acorns become great oak trees, so grow the seeds of greatness within our lives. It takes work and discipline. It takes proper nurturing. It takes time.
Resist inconsistency. Resist impatience. As you assume the responsibilities of the present, take time to enjoy the privileges available to you now.
“And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.”
“And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.”
“If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:”
“But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.”
(2 Peter 3:18)
