Topic: Diligence; A Key To Destiny Fulfilment [Seeds of Destiny Wednesday May 23, 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: You cannot sow average and reap excellence; you cannot sow mediocrity and reap authority.

Some time ago, I heard an insightful story about two sisters: they are twins, that is, products of one conception. While they were growing up in life, one of them always cleared the table after lunch or dinner, kept the house in order and did other necessary chores, but the other one just sat down and did nothing, at best, she watched television.

Later on in life, both of them grew up into individuals with different aptitudes. The diligent sister became the chief executive officer of a major commercial bank, while the indolent one who always watched television ended up being inconsequential and insignificant in life.

Beloved, the lesson is: how you live determines how you end. You cannot sow average and reap excellence; you cannot sow mediocrity and reap authority; what you sow is what you will surely reap.

Now, what are my counsels?
1. Do not work half-heartedly so you do not end empty-handedly. Anything worth doing at all is worth doing wholeheartedly. Serve, love, give, lead, learn and study with all your heart. As a young and single lady, leave any young man who claims to be in a relationship with you but does it half-heartedly and would not introduce you to his parents.

2. As parents, never allow your children to be idle if you do not want their destinies to be useless; never allow them to put their hands in their pockets while others are putting their hands on the deck to work.

3. Arise and live at your best so you can end as the best.

Remember this: You cannot sow average and reap excellence; you cannot sow mediocrity and reap authority.

1. Decide to be dedicated to your duty.
2. Refuse to live a lifestyle of laziness; be diligent.
3. Avoid mediocrity; be excellent in all your conducts and endeavours.

Prayer: O Lord, I ask for the grace for excellent work. Help me never to drag my feet through life, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
