Ability vs. Dependability – Daily Wisdom
Welcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps. We are on Day 1878 of our trek, and it’s time to explore another nugget of wisdom, which includes an inspirational quote and some wise words from Gramps for today’s trek. Wisdom is the final frontier in gaining true knowledge. So we are on a daily trek to create a legacy of wisdom, seek out discernment and insights, and boldly grow where few have chosen to grow before.
Hello, my friend; this is Gramps. Thanks for coming along on today’s trek as we increase wisdom and create a living legacy. Proverbs 16:16 says, “How much better to get wisdom than gold, and sound judgment than silver!” If you apply the words you hear today, over time, it will help you become more healthy, wealthy, and wise as you continue your daily trek of life. So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget.
Today’s quote is from Zig Ziglar, and it is, “Ability is important. Dependability is critical.”
Ability vs. Dependability
Having the ability to accomplish activities in life is important, and God has granted each of us abilities in specific areas that He chooses. However, even if we have all the ability in the world, if we do not have dependability, then little will be accomplished in our lives.
Therefore, we need to be dependable in all aspects of life, from being on time, starting well, and continuing with perseverance until the task is completed. Someone with few abilities but great dependability will accomplish much more than someone who has an abundance of abilities but does not have dependability. You can and should have both and utilize them for God’s glory.
The servant to whom he had entrusted the five bags of silver came forward with five more and said, ‘Master, you gave me five bags of silver to invest, and I have earned five more.’ “The master was full of praise. ‘Well done, my good and faithful servant. You have been faithful in handling this small amount, so now I will give you many more responsibilities. Let’s celebrate together!’
