TOPIC: Dealing with Idleness
SCRIPTURE: Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest. Ecclesiastes 9:10.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Do what you find until you find what you want.
Seeds of Destiny 7th November 2020 Devotional – Dealing with Idleness
In our previous studies we saw the dangers of idleness.
Now, we shall seek to answer the question: What is the way out of idleness?
I shall give you two counsels as a way of answering the above question.
1. Destroy idleness by all means (Ecclesiastes 9:10)
Refuse to sit down doing nothing. Do not watch time moving and nothing is happening in your life. Work for God! Give out a tract! Lead a soul to Christ! Engage in voluntary services! Invest your energy in lending a helping hand to someone in need of physical help. Do something!
2. Do what you find until you find what you want
Do what you find until you find what you want. For example, if you have a master’s degree in Architecture and there is no vacancy for master’s degree holders in Architecture yet; if the only work you see is a menial job at a construction site, make up your mind to go for that job. If you studied Marine Engineering and there is no sea in the city where you live, look for anything you can lay your hands on to do.
Ecclesiastes 9:10 says, “Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do…” The Scripture did not say, “…whenever you findeth your profession; whenever you findeth what you studied in school”. Rather, the Scripture says: “Whatsoever your hands findeth…” When you look for whatever is “findable”, you will definitely see what to do.
So, make up your mind to destroy the spell of idleness.
Remember this: Do what you find until you find what you want.
1. Refuse to maintain an idle mind; destroy idleness by all means.
2. Do what you find until you find what you want.
PRAYER: O Lord, I destroy idleness from my life. I receive the grace to do with all my might whatsoever my hands find to do, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
