Victor Hugo wrote, “Like the trampling of a mighty army, so is the force of an idea whose time has come.”
Peter had an idea that he could walk on water, and he did, making history! Matthew 14:28, 29, “And Peter answered Him and said, ‘Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water.’ So He said, ‘Come.” And when Peter had come down out of the boat, he walked on the water to come to Jesus.”
"Treat ideas like newborn babies.
Treat them tenderly…
They can get killed pretty quickly.
Treat them gently…
They can be bruised in infancy.
Treat them respectfully…
They could be the most valuable things that ever come into your life.
Treat them protectively…
Don’t let them get away.
Treat them nutritionally…
Feed them, and feed them well.
Treat them antiseptically…
Don’t let them get infected with the germs of negative thoughts.
Treat them responsibly!
Respond! Act! Do something with them!”
“Bring ideas in and entertain them royally, for one of them may be the king” (Mark Van Doren, American Writer and Educator, 1894 - 1972).
