Verse Of The Day : Whatsoever your hand finds to do, do it with your might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave… Ecclesiastics 9 : 10
LISTEN : What activities or tasks are you doing my dear? What is your God-given assignment? Are you good at it? When I asked about what you are doing, of course you know it does not include anything contrary to the will of God, but limited to genuine activities. Beloved, are you doing your work with your whole heart? (Colossians 3 : 23). Do you know we have just a limited time here on earth? As a result, must do what we should do with utmost urgency and dedication? (Ephesians 5 : 15 , 16). Our verse of the day says, ” Whatsoever your hand finds to do, do it with your might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave… (Ecclesiastics 9 : 10). My dear, there is no time for procrastination and frivolities. What should be done must be done now. I know you may argue that you do not have what it takes to do your God-given assignments, but you should be at your best in what you do. You do not have to be thrilled with your work every single day, because you will certainly have tough days when you will wish you were somewhere else doing something else. But for the most part you can love it and be proud of what you do. Until you love and become proud of what you do, you cannot give your best; and when you cannot give your best you will wallow in mediocrity. Of course you know that God cannot do anything serious with a mediocre. Beloved, determine to Labour purposefully in everything you do; and do not be satisfied with anything less than the will of God. Be wise!
