TOPIC: MAKING IDEAS HAPPEN! #2
Ecclesiastes 9:10 says, “Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.” Then we find in Romans 12:11, “Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord.” Paul said in Colossians 3:23-24, “And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.” Even our business or secular occupation is encircled by Christianity. The more diligent we are in our secular work, the more pleasing we are unto him who provides our daily bread. Glory to God!
Whether we are business owners or in the employ of a business, it is our obligation to be diligent because we are, after all, working for the Lord (Col. 3:24). Those who are in power in a city, county, state, or nation look at the performance record of a prospect before filling an important position. When a person of proven ability is found, then he/she “will stand before kings.”
The parable of the talents in Matthew 25 demonstrates the pleasure of God in those who are diligent with that which has been entrusted to them. The two servants who exercised diligence had this said to them in verses 21 and 23, “Well done, good and faithful servant; thou halt been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.” Jesus spoke this parable concerning the kingdom of heaven of which Christians are a part. Our King is looking at those who are hardworking, industrious, assiduous Christians for one purpose — to make them rulers over many things.
Prayer: Oh God my creator, look unto me and bless the work of my hands in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
