MAXIMISING LIFE THROUGH ENGAGEMENT IN PRODUCTIVE ACTIVITY
By DIGC14 January 2021
When you do nothing and live anyhow, you are more easily worn out than someone who is living a life that is fully awake and active.
SCRIPTURE: Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord; Romans 12:11
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Doing nothing is more tiring than being active.
Sometime ago, someone saw my schedule and exclaimed, “What a suffering! Do you sleep in the night at all? How do you sleep?”
He was amazed because he saw that apart from pastoring the church and overseeing the (then on-going) Lord’s Garden construction project, I was also actively involved in crusades and outreaches. All these things were going on at the same time.
Beloved, I want you to know that hard work does not wear out a person, rather, it is wrong work that wears a person out. Diligence is more refreshing than idleness. Idleness is more tiring than diligence. Doing nothing is more tiring than being active. When you do nothing and live anyhow, you are more easily worn out than someone who is living a life that is fully awake and active.
When you are fully awake and active, all your cells, arteries, tendons, ligaments, tissues are also fully awake, alert and alive. But when there is nothing to do, your body cells begin to weaken and get flaccid, and then decadence sets in.
To live life to the full, you must be positively active, not aimlessly busy. To live your life to the full, you must be fully and positively engaged for God.
Beloved, I decree that you will fulfil yours days on earth. The grace to live for God and make the most of life is on you right now in Jesus’ Name.
Remember this: Doing nothing is more tiring than being active.
- Make up your mind to be actively engaged in doing something productive.
- Refuse to engage in the wrong work.
PRAYER: O Lord, I ask that You deliver me from the wrong work. Help me to be diligent at work, Lord in Jesus’ Name.
