proverbs {paraphrased}

proverbs 14:23

"all hard work brings a profit,
but mere talk leads only to poverty"

talking is good. planning is important. but it's the doing that makes a difference. after you've made your plans, put them into action.

laboring on a project, bringing an idea to life, taking a concept from thought to reality... these are blessings from The Lord. our hands, our brains, our abilities and skills are all gifts from God and when we use them to the best of our capability, we honor Him. and He blesses our diligence.

on the other hand, the longer we think and talk and plan and imagine and sit on our hands while wagging our tongues... the sooner our dreams dissipate. and nothing comes of them at all.
