How Occupied Are You With The Tasks That God Has Given You?

The call to service is a constant in life. God has appointed a day of reckoning at the end of it, when everyone must appear before the judgment seat of Christ to get the reward of their stewardship, according to what they have done on earth, good or bad (2 Corinthians 5:10).

When God created the world, He ordained work as a means of providing service in order for man to be fulfilled and receive praise or reward. He also established regular rest periods for man, just as He did after establishing the world.

Many people, on the other hand, are exacerbating the need for rest by wasting and misusing time. People like them forget that time is a measure of life, hence wasting time is a fatal flaw.

"And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful and multiply, and replenish the land, and conquer it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and the birds of the air, and over all living things that move upon the ground." Genesis 1:28 

This passage demonstrates that God's command to humans is to live a life of service. The Holy Spirit also teaches us that we only get one chance to use life as a gift. He states in Hebrews 9:27,

"And as it is allotted unto men once to die, but after this the judgment," 

Let us live our lives to the fullest for the glory of God, knowing that we only have one life to live. In this situation, the narrative of David, a shepherd kid who grew up to become King of Israel, is an excellent illustration. David grew up in the bush, where he was responsible for his family's fortune.

He was jeopardizing his life while his brothers reveled in the town's safe haven of pleasure and entertainment. Despite this, David did his job without complaint, and he took use of his time in the bush to hone his musical gift and sharpen his shooting skills.

His musical ability earned him a position as a court musician for the king, and his catapult skills were put to use in the defeat of Goliath, the blasphemer and God's enemy. In Jesus' Name, your perseverance will be rewarded with honor. Excessive rest, on the other hand, leads to inactivity, laziness, boredom, and a slew of other sins that pour in to fill the void that idleness creates.

David's fall into adultery and murder was clearly precipitated by his excessive repose and idleness (2 Samuel 11:1-5). Furthermore, Ezekiel 16:49 shows that "plenty of idleness" played a significant role in the crimes of Sodom and Gomorrah, as well as their eventual destruction.
