WORK!

“For a worker is worth his keep”    Matthew 10:10b

Reading my devotional I came across this scripture.  It hit me today and then I was speaking with a co-worker about his 19-year-old as well on this topic.  WORK!  At anything and everything you do, WORK at it.  Don’t be lazy.  Don’t expect things to be given you.  There is no such thing as ‘OWED!’  Nothing comes free and all is given at a cost/price.  Even our Salvation cost Jesus His life. 

Learn the value of a dollar.  WORK for the things you desire and WORK hard.  Even a lazy, half-hearted effort will get you something, but you will also reap what you sow and half-hearted returns will be what you get.  Shortcuts and easy way outs and excuses are for the birds.  Don’t be stuck in the lack of caring, lack of responsibility crowd.  Own up to your faults, make things better for you and your family and WORK hard at everything you do.  WHY?…because a worker is worth his keep.

“Lord, help us to work hard and give us the strength and guidance and direction to do so. Amen.”
