Something To Think About Saturday

I know that Gov. Palin meant this from a political standpoint since she is Sen. John McCain's new running mate, but there are plenty of other ways to apply it to our lives.

My first thought was to liken it to our compassion for others. We may have it in our hearts to help someone, but until we act on it, it just stays there doing nothing. We might feel inadequate to reach out and help someone. Perhaps we may feel like we might fail them. But we will never do any good if we don't try. In my opinion, one of the reasons we are put here on this earth, is to love and help one another. We are built to help.

Compassion is just one way to look at this quote...what else can we compare this quote to? Talents? Taking a class to better ourselves? You tell me! I'd love to hear someone elses take in this quote.

I would have to say for me that comment would refer to my life...lol

I stayed where I was for so long because I felt safe. I let someone walk all over me for so long because I didn't think I had it in me to do it all on my own. Well look at me now! I am doing it on my own and I can do it on my own. Until we actually get out and try, we will never know our worth!

Awesome quote. I totally did not think of it that way, but now that quote is going to be added to my scriptures somewhere with an appropriate scripture. Thanks.
