Proverbs 18:9 NCV “A person who doesn’t work hard is just like someone who destroys things.”
Approach your day in a new way.
Take inventory of how much time is spent driving, working, or eating?
Do this in an effort to eliminate laziness.
Simply ask yourself the question, how much of my time is wasted?
Actively make an effort to be productive in the kingdom of God. Replace wasted time with an activity that has value in the kingdom of God.
Look, search and see if there is an opportunity for you to be more productive. Be honest with yourself.
Ask the Holy Spirit to help you to see this clearly, then humbly go to the Father and ask Him for help.
Father, God I thank you for today and I thank you that I can be honest and candid with you. Please help me to take inventory of how I spend my time and money. Help me to be an exceptional steward over what you have given me.
Help me to change and help me to totally accept your love for me. I want to be just like you. Open my eyes and help me to be open to growth in this area.
Thanks for hearing my prayer. Amen!
