SCRIPTURE: By much slothfulness the building decayeth; and through idleness of the hands the house droppeth through. Ecclesiastes 10:18.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: To work is to both work and walk your way to the top.
Sometime ago, I heard a story: A young man who had a Master’s Degree in Architecture decided to go to a building construction site and began to carry blocks with other labourers because that was what he found to do at the time.
In the course of carrying blocks, the owner of the project site observed how different he was from the rest of the labourers. It seemed that since he had a Master’s Degree, he carried his own blocks in a master’s style; he carried his blocks with decorum while the other labourers carried theirs in agbero style, that is, locally, unprofessionally and without decorum.
So, the owner of the construction site called him and told him, “You are different from all these people. Who are you?”
He replied, “I am an Architect”.
The site owner was amazed and said, “What! Archi-what? Architect? What level?”
He replied that he had a Master’s Degree in Architecture.
The owner of the project site asked again, “Masters in Architecture? Then what are you doing here carrying blocks as a labourer?”
The young man said, “It is because there is no job, and I cannot be idle. So, I have to do something to pay my bills”.
Immediately, the site owner made him the Project Architect. It is very interesting to know that this particular young man is now a billionaire and has many properties in town.
This young man refused to be idle. He destroyed idleness by doing what he found and today, God has lifted him. Beloved, by all means, destroy idleness in your life. To work is to both work and walk your way to the top.
Remember this: To work is to both work and walk your way to the top.
- Destroy idleness in your life by diligent work.
- Work and walk your way to the top by brutal and dedicated labour.
PRAYER: Lord, I ask for the baptism of diligence. I receive the grace to work my way to greatness in life, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
