SCRIPTURE: By much slothfulness the building decayeth; and through idleness of the hands the house droppeth through. – Ecclesiastes 10:18.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: A life that is not engaged degenerates and dilapidates.
Our God is the Author and Giver of life. His intention for giving us life is to make the most of it. When we live life to the full, we are fulfilled.
From our anchor scripture, we can see that slothfulness makes a building (which is likened to our body – 1 Corinthians 6:19) to decay. The meaning of this is, when the hand is idle, life decays. A life that is not fully engaged rapidly degenerates and dilapidates. For example, someone who has retired from active civil service and does not engage himself in other areas of life begins to fall sick.
If you must live your life to the full, you must make the most of it by engaging yourself fully.
How then do you live a life that is fully engaged?
a) Living to worship and serve God.
b) Living to change lives for God.
c) Living to make impact and add value to lives.
d) Living to release full potentials
e) Living in quality relationship with others
f) Living as a generation problem solver.
If you engage your life in any of these areas, you are making the most of it.
I decree the death of anything that causes lethargy and weariness in your life in Jesus Name.
Remember this: The life that is not engaged degenerates and dilapidates.
1. Deal with every form of idleness in your life.
2. Confront the spirit of inactivity, laziness by engaging yourself in active work and service.
3. Ask God to show you what to do.
4. Do it now.
PRAYER: O LORD, deal with every lethargy in my life. Engage me in Your service LORD, in Jesus Name.
