Topic: Use Your Resources Now [Monday 31 July, 2017]
Text: Ecclesiastes 9:10
There is no man living who isn’t capable of doing more than he thinks he can do, said Henry Ford. Our text of today harps on the essence of prompt hard work. Everyone has a natural God-given potential to become successful.
Use your resources to the best of your ability now for you have no need of them after death. Use your gifts creatively and wisely for the good of mankind and God’s glory.
Hence Martin Luther King Jr. said, a man is called to be street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michael Angelo painted, or Beethoven composed music; or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets well that all the host of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.
Come out of your cocoon and do something with the resources the Lord bestowed on you. As a student, you should be studious so as to excel in your academic work. Ask God to help you to use your resources well.
