Business Unfinished

Don’t raise your hand, but how many of you have unfinished business?

I always enjoy a good story where payback is involved. The good guys somehow overcome all sorts of obstacles in order to have the opportunity to go back and take care of some unfinished business with the bad guys.

Having unfinished business can haunt you.
It could be with someone who has wronged you…
Possibly it is with missed opportunities…
You might have even left the road littered with unfinished things that you’ve started, but have yet to complete…

Unfinished business.

How about instead of allowing what is unfinished to haunt us, we open the secret places of our hearts and let it motivate us? Instead of allowing unfinished business to create opportunity to point the finger toward others, we instead turn that finger around and point it where it really belongs.

Sometimes all it comes down to is perception. How do we view what is left undone?             A teenager lost a contact lens while playing basketball in his driveway. After a fruitless search, he told his mother the lens was nowhere to be found. Undaunted, she went outside and in a few minutes returned with the lens in her hand. "I really looked hard for that, Mom," said the youth. "How'd you manage to find it?" 
"We weren't looking for the same thing," she replied. "You were looking for a small piece of plastic. I was looking for $150." (Source Unknown)

Numbers 13: Moses sent 12 spies to check out the land that God had already promised the children of Israel. 10 of them came back saying, “Not on your life. Those dudes over there are giants.” Joshua and Caleb were the only ones that came back motivated by what they saw. Their unfinished business was seen through different lenses.
We can sit to the side and let unfinished business destroy our dream, or we can open up and let it motivate us toward it. All it really comes down to is what we are looking for. 
Keep allowing what is undone to ruin the dream of tomorrow and you will never move past where you are. But start looking for the motivation, and you will accomplish the impossible.
