PRECIOUS FREE PERIODS

TEXT: ECCLESIASTES 9:10-13

MEMORY VERSE: “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).

Many schools deliberately leave certain periods of the class timetable free of any lesson. However, it is done sometimes to avoid clash of lessons. They could be precious free periods.

While the unwise students play and loaf around during such periods, wise students busy themselves with activities that would enhance their academic performance. Be wise!

Have you graduated from one level of education and waiting for admission to an institution of higher learning? That is not a free period. You can learn a skill, take a short professional course or even attach yourself to an entrepreneur with a view to taking practical lessons on how to run a business.

Free wasteful periods exist only in the graves. Free periods can also be used for personal Bible study, meditation and prayers.

Watchman Nee wrote, “A diligent person is never idle, he is always looking for things to do. He is always pondering, praying, contemplating and considering before God as to what he should do.”

QUOTE: A diligent person is never idle.

CHALLENGE: Always occupy yourself in productive activities.

PRAYER: Teach me how best to use my time, Lord.
