Inspirations for Friday, July 23, 2010

Inspirations for Friday, July 23, 2010

Below is a response from the portion of Thursday’s Inspirational Message that stated “Worrying is like a rocking chair: it gives you something to do, but it doesn't get you anywhere”.

For the most part I agree, but we must be careful not to confuse worry with concern.

Certain flight instructors were not worried that their students were only interested in learning how to fly an airliner, and not how to take off or land; however, they should have been concerned.

NASA officials were not worried that "O" Rings may not seal properly during cold weather; however, they should have been concerned.

Just a few years ago, people were not worried about buying homes with no money down; however, they should have been concerned.

BP executives were not worried that an off shore Oil Rig might blowup; however, they should have been concerned about the possibility.

The list goes on and on.

Ah, Hope! What would life be, stripped of thy encouraging smiles, that teach us to look behind the dark clouds of to-day, for the golden beams that are to gild the morrow.
