What about you? What do you want to be better at? Do you want to surf better, a better communicator, a faster runner or have better character? All of these require work. People don’t just become better at these things by thinking about them frequently. Action must take place! A better surfer requires getting in the water and surfing, a better communicator requires talking to others in various situations and listening, a faster runner requires practice and fitness training, and better character may require reading the bible and seeing what God wants us to learn.
One unique thing about all of these areas are that a good teacher will enhance all of these areas. A good teacher can provide valuable pieces of information that will help reach a goal more effectively. If everybody knew that they had access to the best teacher in the world that will help encourage, strengthen, and teach them what it looks like to become an honorable man or woman, wouldn’t they jump at the chance? Try comparing the teachers that people are learning from today to God. It sounds silly doesn’t it? Why do we so often choose teachers that are far less qualified than God? I think there are two reasons, we either aren’t aware that we can learn from God, or we forget that to remind ourselves that we can.
Work hard today in whatever you choose to do, and remind yourself that you have access to the BEST teacher to encourage and guide you on your journey.
You will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours.
Those who work their land will have abundant food, but those who chase fantasies have no sense.
Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters
