the most important thing that you bring home from your work is not your pay check. it is you, it is your character.
how am i different and when you are considering a job, you should not only look at what does it pay me, but also what is it going to do to me? what am i going to become as a result of this job? because GOD says, work develops my character.
HE also says that work allows me to be generous.
ephesians 4.28 (nlt), ...begin using your hands for honest work and then give generously to others in need. now that is a radical idea.
many of you are possibly planning early retirement. have you ever considered that GOD might have you keep on working after you’ve made it, just so you could give that money away.
have you ever considered that GOD wants you to keep working simply so you could have more to give away.
you see, if you don’t have any money then you don’t have any way to give. no resources, no generosity.
GOD says, “I want you to be generous with your resources.” work allows me to be generous.
just a thought from the front porch…
