Am I Productive?
Am I SELF-willed Productive?
“Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.”
I got really big on fitness, so I’d find myself jogging: looking really “cute” in my academy sports clothes ( no offense to A.S. I enjoy their goods)……while my mom was cutting grass; raking leaves; tilling the flower beds; cleaning the yard in her regular hat, boots, outdoor wear….You get the picture right?!
so…Which one was more productive?
There’s a scripture that goes ..”Bodily exercise profiths little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.” 1 Timothy 4:8
so….yea, I finally got the picture. I actually started to realize how backwards I was acting. So needless to say, I now cut all the grass that I can, clean all that I can, do laundry , etc….without hesitation. (Come to find out, I sweat more doing this..lol go figure!)
1 Thessalonians 4:11
..”And make it your ambition to lead a quiet life: You should mind your own business and work with your hands, just as we instructed you before so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody.”
If I have empowered just one person, through the Holy Spiirt, I have accomplished much. 🙂
In Jesus name, Amen
