Topic — Serious Mindedness: Key To A Glorious Destiny [Seeds of Destiny Thursday May 17, 2018]

Scripture: Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest. – Ecclesiastes 9:10

Thought For The Day: It takes a serious approach to life to have a serious outcome in life; those who take life casually would end as casualties.

Some time ago, I heard the story of an unusually playful boy. The boy was too playful to take his life seriously and as a result, he ended up as a casualty.

Many times, he would playfully shout, Wolf! Wolf! Wolf! His parents would then run to his aid thinking that there was a wolf that came to devour him, but surprisingly, they would discover that there was no wolf.

So, one day, a wolf actually came and the little boy shouted, Wolf! Wolf! Wolf!… but the parents thought that he was joking as usual and turned deaf ears to his call for rescue, then the wolf rushed and devoured the child. What a disaster!

Beloved, the lesson is, it takes a serious approach to life to have a serious outcome in life; those who take life casually would end as casualties. Casualness to life is the reason for casualties. To take life casually is to be a victim of negative circumstances.

Anyone who is not serious with life cannot have a serious outcome in life.
There are people who are not serious with their relationship with God, church attendance or anything until life passed them by.

Beloved, be serious-minded in all you do. Let the devil confirm that you are a serious person. If you will serve God, serve Him wholeheartedly, dedicatedly, aggressively and passionately. If you will give, give generously and aggressively. If you are a worker, work passionately and diligently. When you are serious, nothing can take you for granted. Doing it seriously is key to ending gloriously.

Remember this: It takes a serious approach to life to have a serious outcome in life; those who take life casually end as casualties.

1. Refuse to play with your life and destiny; be committed to your assignment diligently.
2. Decide to be serious; maintain a serious approach to life generally.

Prayer: O Lord, I refuse to be a casualty of life; help me to cultivate and maintain a serious approach to life, Lord, in Jesus Name.
