Is a strong Work Ethic important!
Psalm 104:23 “Man goeth forth unto his work and to his labor until the evening.
A strong work ethic is pleasing to our Lord and wise! God intends for us to give 100% for His glory on the job and off. Yes, you do not have to love your job or your boss to give this effort, just love and obey Jesus.
Proverbs 10:4,5 “He who deals with a slack hand becomes poor, but the hand of the diligent makes one rich. He who gathers in the summer is a wise son, but he who sleeps in harvest is a son who causes shame.”
Remember, riches most importantly relates to our relationship and blessings from God and not from material riches. As I think about God’s work on this earth it appears to me that God needs His servants in every class or level of society to be salt and light for His name. So, yes God can provide riches of the material level and yes with their provision comes responsibility for the one who is the caretaker of them.
Be a wise son or daughter of the King and seek to serve Him first and all else will be taken care of! And fortunately for us retirees there is no such thing as retirement when serving Jesus. There are always lost to be reached.
Proverbs 10:1 “A wise son makes a glad father, but a foolish son is the grief of his mother.”
2 Thes. 3:10 “For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.”
