Hard at work or hardly working?


“Hard work spotlights the character of people: some turn up their sleeves, some turn up their noses, and some don’t turn up at all. “

— Sam Ewing

What do you think about hard work? We all have a lazy gene that sneaks up every once in a while. Others let it flourish. Some will work hard their whole life out of some sort of emotional need for success. Others could care less.

In your experience, do Christians work harder? Or do they avoid it?

Do you work hard? Why or why not.

    I've seen Christians do both — some work hard, some avoid it. Just like everybody else. And that's the problem.

    I work. It produces gain. Keeps you from getting flabby. Makes the work time pass more quickly.

    And so I have the opposite problem, of failing to recognize the time to "Be still and know that I am God."

    There must be balance. Or we will still be "like everybody else."
