Week 20 – Potential is Worthless Unless …

Potential Becomes Valuable only when it is recognized and used.

How many times have you heard from a teacher “He has such potential but he is not using it” or hear commentators say how this athlete has great potential? Everything has great potential in it. It is the art of educing this potential out of us that is the key.

There is a story of a man who saw some boys playing a game with some stones. He noticed the stones and found that they got them from their father, The father had bowels of them as they were all around the place….. You may know the story that this was the greatest jewel field in Africa. Yet the families there did not recognize what was there. There was the potential for great wealth but they could not make use of it because they did not recognize it!

Our minds and thoughts are the same. We hold great potential, great gifts, but until we recognize, understand, and become conscious of what we have we are unable to use it.

You may have all the wealth in Christendom, but unless you recognize it and make use of it, it will have no value! – 20:2 MKS

We have been given this great tool, our mind, to use and create with. Oil, electricity, gases, water, everything on this planet has always been here but until we learned of its existence, recognized it, learned how to harness it, only then were we able to profit from it.

You and I have the greatest tool and mechanism ever at our disposal. Given freely and abundantly. We have great potential in our own minds if we but learn to THINK!

Take the time to recognize, learn, harness, and create with this power within you!

Thinking Man
