Spirit And Life Devotional: Don’t Be Idle

“One day Ruth, the Moabite, said to Naomi, ‘I think I will go to the fields. Maybe I can find someone who will be kind to me and let me gather the grain they leave in their field.’ Naomi said, ‘Fine, daughter, go ahead.'” Ruth 2:2 ERV

It is said that an idle mind is the devil’s workshop. Global unemployment rates are quite high that’s why there are so many evils. But it’s not just about the evils associated with idleness, idleness is not in anyway encouraged, especially for the children of God.

We’re looking unto Jesus, right? Jesus was a very hardworking Man while here on earth. And that’s why the Pharisees disliked Him, because He refused to be idle even on the Sabbath days. Jesus said, “My Father never stops working, and so I work too.” John 5:17. You see, even God never stops working! So if we’re His children, we too must love and enjoy working.

Refuse to be idle. That there’s no job is not an excuse to be idle! There might be no job, but there’s always work. You may not be able to create a job, but you can create work for yourself by solving problems for other people with your skills, talents and ideas! And then you can grow to create employment for others.

May you find favour in the name of Jesus. As you step out, men and women will be willing to help and patronize you, in Jesus name. Amen.
