Stop The Talk…

For the dream comes through much effort and the voice of a fool through many words
Ecclesiastes 5:3

Have you ever tried to have a conversation with someone who just won’t stop talking? They hardly even take a breath as they expound all their knowledge & opinion on just about everything that exists. In time you discover that all they do is talk and never really achieve anything.

Today’s verse calls these people fools. It doesn’t call them this because they talk a lot but rather because they don’t put effort into the things they’re talking about. They’re hoping you’ll make it all happen for them as they unfurl in words every part of their dream. This isn’t God’s way of making a dream happen.

Every dream that God gives us will take more than talk to achieve. It will take much effort, which means lots of hard work. It’s OK to talk about your dream but in the end, God gave you the dream and you’re going to have to put in the hard work to make it happen. If not, then the dream will die as it does in the mouth of a fool.

This week let’s make our God Dreams flourish. Rather than foolishly talking about it lets actually make something good happen for the dream. If your dream is to write a book then this week write a chapter. If it’s a song write the chorus. If it’s a business register the name. If it’s travel book a ticket and if its marriage then invite someone out for a coffee. Whatever the dream is that God’s given you make something happen for it this week and it’ll grow and become stronger than ever before!
