“Becoming A Good Workman”

Key Verse

  “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2: 15).

Text — 2 Timothy 2:15-18


The secret of a successful workman lies in the famous quote of former American President Abraham Lincoln, “If I had eight hours to chop down a tree, I’d spend six hours sharpening my axe.” There are a lot of youths in this generation who don’t study hard enough to ensure success in their areas of endeavours.  Be different.  Stand out as a smart hardworking youth and you will achieve a resounding success in life.

As a Christian youth, apply yourself to learning in school. Also, have a mentor in your chosen career line or a good role model. Peter and the other disciples learned at the feet of Jesus. Paul studied law through Gamaliel, and many contemporary ministers of God learned from older ministers. Friend, study hard in order to lay a sound foundation for your career and effective service for the Lord. Read today’s memory verse again and learn from Paul’s counsel to Timothy. Many youths are deceived into errors because they don’t have sound knowledge of the scriptures. Don’t be a victim.


Apply yourself to learning


Study the scriptures.

Prayer for today

 Oh God, help me to be a good workman, in Jesus’ name.
