Topic: “Idleness Impoverishes” Higher Every Day – Pastor W. F. Kumuyi. – [Thursday, June 1, 2017]
“By much slothfulness the building decayeth; and through idleness of the hands the house droppeth through” (By Ecclesiastes 10:18).
Anebi grew up in a village where farming was the major job. He never liked going to farm with his parents. Whenever it was time to go to the farm, he would sneak out. The parents once decided to starve him. He had no food to eat so, he stood outside the compound and voiced out, “These people are wicked.” His idleness earned him lack of food and so, he was the worst hit and not his parents. To idle young people like Anebi, Louisa May Alcott says, “Have regular hours for work and play; make each day both useful and pleasant, and prove that you understand the worth of time by employing it well.” Idle people never make it in life especially in Christian service. There is nothing like an idle Christian. A real Christian is hard working. God hates idleness but blesses hard work. You can become great if you stop being idle. Let not your hands be slack. Accept Christ now if you have not and you will receive power to be God’s child and to succeed in life.
Challenge: A real Christian is hard working.
Prayer: I conquer laziness in Jesus name.
Quote:God hates idleness.
