Be careful how you act; these are difficult days. Don’t be fools; be wise: make the most of every opportunity you have for doing good.” (Ephesians 5:15-16 TLB)
Everyone has a dream. Maybe you have had it since you were a child. Maybe it came to you more recently. Desires, wishes, and ambitions should be a part of all of our lives. You may have hidden it deep inside of you, but you have a dream. The question is not whether you have a dream. It is “What are you doing with your dream?” Most dreams never come true. It is not that we are not smart enough, not outgoing enough nor spiritual fit enough. Usually, our dreams don’t come true because we are unwilling to take the necessary risks to reach them.
The Bible shares a king who failed to achieve an important ambition in his life: “[King] Jehoshaphat built a fleet of trading ships to go to Ophir for gold, but they never set sail they were wrecked at Ezion Geber” (1Kings 22:48 NIV). While it is a tragedy for your ship to never come in life, it is a greater tragedy for you to build a ship and never set sail.
