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 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.

Matthew 6:25, 33 “Therefore I tell you: Don’t worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Isn’t life more than food and the body more than clothing? . . . But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be provided for you. (CSB)
Proverbs 17:27, 28 The one who has knowledge restrains his words, and one who keeps a cool head is a person of understanding. Even a fool is considered wise when he keeps silent — discerning, when he seals his lips. (CSB)
