Patient in spirit

In a rich man’s house, there was a huge garage, which became a dumping place. He had fanciful ideas and wanted to pursue many of them. There was his desire to become a musician, participate in a car race, bike-riding, parachute jumping, skiing, skating…etc. Being rich he would summon the best of coaches and buy expensive equipment. The beginning would be fancy but within a few weeks, the ideas would be abandoned. The garage was filled with musical instruments, sports gadgets, cars, bikes…etc. The Preacher wrote: “Better is the end of a thing than its beginning, and the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit.” (Ecclesiastes 7:8) The challenge is how to begin with the end in mind. Many start, but never finish or complete.
Imaginations and Fantasies: Many have weird or wild imaginations. Thinking themselves as superheroes who like to attain the status of spiderman or batman. They think they can do anything and compare themselves with others. They say: “If this inferior person could do it, why not me?”
Overconfidence: Such people have overconfidence or untested self-confidence. They also boast that they could do it with their left hand, which others would do with their right hand.
Lack of stewardship: The rich man had resources; hence he would start so many projects, invest huge amounts and leave them to die. All resources, including especially of the disciples, belong to God and should be used for the purpose for which it is given. They fail to count the cost. The Lord commanded his people to count the cost before starting a building or war. (Luke 14:28-30)
Lack of discipline: Many like to achieve the peak of glory without paying the cost. Those champions in the world worked hard. People used by God went through trials, tribulations, and troubles and were tested like gold.
Lack of patience: Those who strive, endure, persevere, and relentlessly will be saved. (Matthew 24:13)
Lack of humility: Those who are proud in spirit will lack patience, hence be defeated.
Do I run to complete the purpose of my calling?
