Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise! It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest. ~ Proverbs 6: 6-8
Men understand the value of work and what it takes to pay the bills. No matter your culture, we exchange work for money.
If we want to grow our faith life, we must also do the work and invest the time in the disciplines of faith. While we can't "work our way to heaven", we can get off the couch and engage in an active life of faith.
Today, consider how you can commit your efforts to spiritual growth. Decide to get busy practicing your faith through study, worship, accountability, prayer, and service.
