A Dream Comes With Much Business

Ecclesiastes 5:3

For a dream comes with much business, and a fool’s voice with many words.

Simple but powerful.

I can’t think of a more eloquent way to say what is being stated in this verse.

“For a dream comes with much business…”

T o realize your dreams requires work, hard work, sometimes a lifetime of work.  Sometimes the dream fulfilled may just be the work itself.  But no matter what work is required, toil each day towards your dream and be happy in your toil.

“A dream without a plan is just a wish.”  Katherine Paterson

There are many other similar quotes to the one above and the express the same sentiment so let me add my twist;  a dream without action is just a wish.

“…and a fool’s voice with many words.”

We all know about this.  We have all heard it and we have all said it.

Oh, I’m going to do this and I’m going to do that, I have a dream blah, blah, blah.  We talk and talk and never take one step towards that dream we talk about.  As soon as we realize there’s work involved it’s time to move onto the next dream and talk about that one.

Why do we usually shy away from the work?  Because we have no passion about the dream.

I came across the following quote.  I’m not sure who said but it pretty much sums it up for me:

“Passion without action is merely a dream.  Action without passion merely passes the time.  Passion with action can change the world.”

Dream about your passion, be passionate about your dreams.  Shut your mouth and do the work and God will open the world to you.

King Solomon knew this.  He was simple and to the point.
