Every Friday, Kate Motaung posts a word to spark five minutes of writing. This week, the word prompt is STEADY.
“Slow but steady wins the race.”
Who hasn’t heard that motto or read Aesop’s fable of “The Tortoise and the Hare”? It is a lesson we all can (and maybe should) embrace.
When we steadily work on something, taking our time, being careful to do our best, we can achieve much.
It is that steady plodding forward that is the secret – keep moving, step by step; keep doing, eyes forward.
Writers are told to write daily and it is this daily action, no matter the number of words written, that improves our writing.
Each Friday, Kate Motaung of “Five Minute Friday”, posts a prompt and encourages us to write for five minutes.
This week the theme is WORTH. (Check here to visit other writers)
When we think of worth, we tend to think first in terms of buying things and money – what is this worth? How much will it cost?
Yet, in these turbulent times, it is the worth of people which should be our first concern. As Christ told us, over and over, loving others is a must.
Too often, hate and cruelty to others predominates. Fear and ignorance push people to racist acts. The news is full of killings and destruction all over the world..
If everyone could only see that every person has worth, is valuable, is a child of God, LOVE would dominate, not hate.
Yes, we are all worth so much. We need to acknowledge our own worth and celebrate the worth of everyone we meet. We may never know when we meet Jesus.
