Spiritual Food for Thought for the Weekend
The sluggard says, “There’s a lion outside! I’ll be killed in the public square!”
Is there something you need to be diligent about? Is there an unfinished task that you need to complete? Or are you being lazy with your spiritual life? I remember talking to an older pastor who reminded me that one of the killers for ministers is laziness. Laziness can make you spiritually unfruitful. Although we don’t live to perform for God, we don’t want to let laziness grow in our life for the enemy will use it destroy our relationship with God.
List three things you could be doing to spice up your relationship with God. Ask God for His grace to carry it out. Memorize 2 Timothy 1:7 tonight, and don’t be lazy in memorizing it: “For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.”
Prayer: Lord, help me to be diligent and not be given to laziness. Fill me with Your Spirit and Word so that I may lead a diligent and productive life that advances Your kingdom on earth. Amen.
