Wisdom and Truth Minute: Day 47

Hard Work

Ecclesiastes 9:10

Hi, I’m Howie Campbell, and this is a Wisdom and Truth Minute.

“Whatsoever your hand finds to do, do it with your might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, to which you go.” Ecclesiastes 9:10.

I was watching two men working on a driveway recently. One was operating a machine, then he would get out to rake and shovel. Obviously, he was a supervisor or the owner. He was working hard. The other fellow wasn’t working quite so hard, taking lots of breaks, just sort of taking his time. In the grave, it’s over. So, whether I’m working for myself or someone else, I want to work diligently, to the best of my ability. I want to max out this life.
