My Bible readings for this week come from 1 Timothy 5 v 8, 2 Corinthians 12 v 14 and Proverbs 6 vs 6-9,
Have a quick read because it reminded me that I owe a duty to God AND to my boss.
We are to be diligent in our business in providing for ourselves and our families. God, at the very beginning of the Book (Genesis 1-3), when He put Adam and Eve in the Garden, says that they are to dress and keep it, meaning that they are to work on it, to add to it, and to guard it from deterioration.
Part of our responsibility is to be diligent in doing our job for our employer. We are to be careful not to squander and waste what we have. We are to look ahead and plan to provide for future demands, taking into consideration that there will be emergencies like accidents, illness, death, natural disasters. We are to prepare for such things.
If we fail to do that, it is not showing faith that “God will provide,” but rather presumption and dare I say, irresponsibility in throwing all the responsibility on God while we ignore ours, failing to do what God instructs us to do.
So let’s all press on this week – you pray for me and I’ll pray for you
