So asks today’s Daily Nudge. I thank one of the Fellows for the suggestion of the question. Since this might be considered a tad sensitive, I’ll go first this time. (Oops, I see two have beat me to the draw. Good for them!)
“Finish what you start.” That’s a principle and in the Corinthians’ goal of contributing to help the Jerusalem saints, it’s a command:
“Here is my advice: It would be good for you to finish what you started a year ago. Last year you were the first who wanted to give, and you were the first to begin doing it. Now you should finish what you started. Let the eagerness you showed in the beginning be matched now by your giving. Give in proportion to what you have” (2 Cor 8:10-11 NLT).
I’m creative and like to initiate projects. I have many (I try to not count) books, projects and ideas languishing for lack of attention. So I struggle to finish what I start.
