Proverbs 12:24a (NIV)
“The hand of the diligent will rule…” Emphasis Mine.
Everything we do for the sake of the kingdom does not go unnoticed by Him. “For God is not unjust so as to forget your work and the love which you have shown towards His name, in having ministered and in still ministering to the saints.” Hebrews 6:10 (NIV).
Reach your full potential in your diverse responsibilities. Earlier, we examined that Ezra was a scribe/priest, teacher of the Law, devoted to studying and observing the Law of the Lord. When you read the details of Ezra’s life, he was one of the leaders who led the Jews from Babylonian exile back to Jerusalem. He remained diligent to all the assignments given to him by God the Father.
Approach your responsibilities with a sense of ownership and accountability. In no circumstance should you be a male with a carefree attitude. Handle circumstances with a sense of urgency and excellence.
How do you find balance in the midst of all the responsibilities?
Prioritize. Give attention to what is most relevant.
God has a position, location, population, activity and direction for you. And He needs your attention. Amen! So it was with Ezra, and so it is for you and me.
