QUOTE OF THE DAY: “ENDING WELL IS GREATER THAN STARTING WELL”
Memory Verse: “So Judas threw the money into the temple and left. Then he went away and hanged himself”
It is not all those who started well that ended well. You may have started well, however, certain things need to be put in place, otherwise, ending well may not be possible. One of the reasons for all the attacks you are facing in your career, ministry, marriage, children, academics, and with life in general is that the devil does not want you to finish this race on earth well.
I can point to a good number of people in the scripture who started well but did not end well. I can also make reference to certain people who started well and ended well. For instance, Judas, one of the disciples of Jesus Christ unfortunately got distracted by covetousness and uncontrolled pilfering and his ministerial destiny was abruptly terminated by suicide, despite the fact that he started well.
Jesus started His ministerial assignment well and to God’s glory, he ended it well. How you start a thing is not as important as how you end it. How you join a church is not as important as how you leave the church. How you came into the world is not as important as how you leave. The enemy has always been waiting for every one of us at the end of our endeavours and undertakings.
One of the reasons you should strive to end well in all circumstances is that; people do not always remember how you started, but the circumstance around your exit lingers in their memory.
It speaks a lot about you. Ending well was so important to Paul. He had to endure all pains and trials in order to finish his course with joy. Do you want to end well? Discipline yourself and do away with all distractions – sins, disobedience. Adhere to the laid down principles guiding the race you are running. Make a determination to end well, and rely on God’s grace. God will see you through. You will end well in Jesus name.
