Work hard at whatever you do. You will soon go to the world of the dead, where no one works or thinks or reasons or knows anything. Ecc 9:10
I kinda like the King James version of that verse best, it reads whatever thy hands find to do, do it with all thy might! Sounds like a Noble declaration doesn't it? Well, it is. In modern-day language, it would read "Get ya hustle on and stay on the grind cause it will be over before ya know it and then it will be too late!
This phase of our lives here on the earth is a one-shot deal...there will be no do-overs. So the message is to make the most of this short amount of time we have been given and do our very best. Sometimes when I read the Gospels and look at the life of Jesus Christ it puts me to shame, He turned the world upside down in 3 short years...how's that for a "purpose-driven life!" Jesus Himself told us to redeem or make good use of our time because the days are short...it's time out for playing, and remember there is no such thing as "Honorable Mention" in Heaven. So stop playing and Get On Yo Kingdom Grind!
Today's Challenge: If today was your last day on earth, would you be confident that you have done all that you have been placed here to do? Treat today and every day hereafter as if there is only a limited amount of them available, and don't put off for tomorrow the things that you could do today. It's time to live with both Passion & Purpose...Let's Go!
