Commitment precedes success

Duty to man and God is the sole responsibility of man on earth.When man reckons his duty to God, he spontaneously develops a right attitude of his accountability to man. Striking loud and clear then is his commitment visible.

God expects man to do all things willingly and cheerfully not as to man; but as to the lord.-(Col.3:23,24.)

A conscientious worker although passed unnoticed patiently weaves his paths over the mountains and through the valleys until his goal is reached; despite the scorns and rebuffs of the passers by he keeps toiling on.Keep your eyes fixed on Jesus the author and finisher of our faith.

The Beaver is an excellent example of an industrious worker which stays committed to its task. A farmer once tried to discourage a beaver from building a dam across the river by breaking down the barrier.The following day he found it reconstructed. An idea dawned on the farmer and he placed a lighted lantern near the site of construction. The next day the lantern was found covered with leaves and twigs; and the beavers' work continued. Once again the farmer tried another stunt by placing a rotating wheel that produced sounds of the beat of a drum, as it kept spinning by the force of the river gushing down. This time too, the farmer was astounded to find the spinning wheel clogged with sticks. Finally the farmer gave up! Commitment is the sterling quality of a successful individual. It is the vital essence in every phase of life and in every mode of work.

A determined heart will never give up and stay committed to his task. Remember duty to man is duty to God! Lack of commitment is like a crown that has lost its jewels.
