“I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work” (John 9:4).Text — John 9:1-7
From creation, God built work into the schedule of humankind. Work is the physical or mental effort directed at doing or making something. It is carrying out a task. Otto Von Bismarck declared, “To youth I have but three words of counsel – work, work, work.” Every situation around Jesus presented an opportunity for work as He worked with the Father at the creation of the world; and we should follow suit. We are shown in our text a man that was born blind and immediately Jesus saw him He did not waste time to work. Our hands should not be idle lest Satan engages us in his workshop. We need to seize every opportunity to work for Jesus everywhere we go.
Every situation should present a youth with an opportunity to do some work like household chores, evangelism, singing in the choir, teaching others in the school fellowship, and using our talents and gifts whenever opportunities knock. As you step out today, get yourself busy in productive activities. However, do not neglect your studies as a student.
Our hands should not be idle
Work while it is day – the night is coming.
Prayer for today
Oh Lord, strengthen me for the work ahead of me today.
