Winston Churchill

I was speaking with a a friend of mine, John Pearson, and in the course of the conversation he gave me this quote.

"Some days your best is not enough; you have to do what it takes"
-Winston Churchill

That has to be one of the most powerful statements I have heard in a long time.

Deputation is a time of establishing relationships. 2John 1:12 "Having many things to write unto you, I would not write with paper and ink: but I trust to come unto you, and speak face to face, that our joy may be full."

You have many forms of written communication that is very effective but nothing ever beats a face to face conversation. So when you set up meetings today, just remember this verse. When you are tired and do not want to go out with the pastor, remember this verse. Come to think of it, if you remember this verse, then the pastor and church may remember you!

Establish relationships. Go beyond your ability, and by God's grace, do what it takes. The end result was that their joy would be full.

Have a great day.

Churchill said it and lived it. Never was a man so suited for an event. I have listened to all his speaches over a 10 year period and have been amazed at how a man steeled himself for such a time as that. I love that quote. I also love that Howeth fella. Tony, you are "do what it takes" individual.
