Daily D – Proverbs 12:24

Work hard and become a leader; be lazy and become a slave. PROVERBS 12:24 (NLT)

_____________________________________________________________________________

The diligent find freedom in their work; the lazy are oppressed by work.
(The Message)

The most fun I ever had working was when I was a radio disc jockey. That job provided a combination of discipline and creativity. I loved it. I learned to thrive within its constraints.

Another job was ideal for me at the time. It required daily travel by car to visit with church leaders among nine hundred congregations in one region. Driving between two thousand and three thousand miles per month made it possible to listen to lots of books on tape. Podcasting was not yet a big deal.

The pandemic shifted everyone’s daily schedules. Early on, it became apparent that I was accomplishing more working from home on many days than when traveling to and from the office. Notes have been taken regarding how to work more intelligently when our office reopens.

Noble work liberates. Noble work stimulates growth and development. Noble work maximizes talent and creativity. Noble work serves families and communities.

What are the work lessons you have learned during this season? How will you move forward more intelligently?

_____________________________________________________________________________

I will work hard so that I can lead myself and others well.

Our Father, thank you for the gift of noble work. Empower us to work in a manner which honors you and serves others. Amen.

These words that I am giving you today are to be in your heart. Repeat them to your children. Talk about them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Bind them as a sign on your hand and let them be a symbol on your forehead.
