HOW DO YOU DO YOUR WORK?
TEXT: ECCLESIASTES 9:10-12
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).
The question, “How do you do your work?” is very penitent. The profile of Anita Osareme Omonuwa, a young Nigerian lady, is instructive for youths.
Anita holds first class degrees from the University of Reading, UK (LLB); University of Birmingham, UK (LLM) and the Nigerian Law School (BL) where she received several prizes including: Best Outstanding Academic Performance and Best Student in Corporate Law Practice. This type of feat can only be attained by consistent and diligent hard work. How do you do your work?
Our text admonishes, “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). Now is the time to work hard, for time waits for no one.
Do your work to excel in your academics, career, spiritual life, and in all your undertakings. Eschew laziness and procrastination. You can excel like Anita if you diligently work hard. Above all, surrender your life to Christ who will empower you to excel.
QUOTE: Do your work to excel.
CHALLENGE: Do your work with diligence.
PRAYER: Help me Lord, to be faithful in all that I do.
