One Minute With God: Don’t grow Idle

Have you ever got up Monday, and wished it was Friday? How about wrestling to drag your legs out of bed, and violently scrubbing off whatever “gorilla glue” is left on your eyelids? It can easily become very enticing to begin our workweek laying between the sheets and drifting away into the realm of laziness. But, since we have been crowned with influence we must continue to occupy whatever position God has commissioned us during this season.

Many are waiting at home for answers while others are anticipating what can become of the upcoming elections. Either way, you and I must understand that waiting may be a sound virtue of the wise, but it can also become the excuse of the idle. The Bible is clear in teaching us - to be careful of not folding our arms in slumber nor crossing our hands in the things of God so that poverty may not overtake us.

Cast all your cares in the Lord this week, and oust out of your presence whatever is making you lethargic. Remove any of your hidden fears that may paralyze or sabotage your hope. And, with new fervency make progress at every opportunity that the Lord provides. There is still work to do.

Don’t grow idle!

2 Thessalonians 3:11-15

11We hear that some among you are idle and disruptive. They are not busy; they are busybodies. 12Such people, we command and urge in the Lord Jesus Christ to settle down and earn the food they eat. 13And as for you, brothers and sisters, never tire of doing what is good.

14Take special note of anyone who does not obey our instruction in this letter. Do not associate with them, in order that they may feel ashamed. 15Yet do not regard them as an enemy but warn them as you would a fellow believer.
