• God’s Work Ethic Devotional

    Ephesians 4:28

    God’s people are called to be generous, not foolish. We want to provide real help to widows, orphans, and others who are in true need, first in our churches and then in the world. As we seek to help others, we should be discerning, giving to programs that help lift people out of poverty instead of just perpetuating a dysfunctional cycle. We should also be most concerned with how we ourselves are fulfilling the call to generosity, not how others might be failing to do so. View Resource

  • Earning an Honest Living Devotional

    Ephesians 4:28

    Scripture permits us to enjoy the material blessings that God provides, but it never tells us to hoard the fruits of our labor. Christians are to be the most generous of people, using their financial blessings to help those who are unable to satisfy their basic needs, especially impoverished believers. Such assistance, however, should not just be a handout but should be designed to help the poor learn to provide for themselves and for others as well. View Resource

  • Because of You Devotional

    Genesis 3:17-19

    Though applicable to all, the curse on labor has special bearing on men. Leading and providing for a family can be overwhelming, and the curse is most manifest whenever men view work as mere drudgery, try to do as little as possible, or use their job as an excuse to neglect real relationships with their families and friends. If you are a man, consider if you have done these things and seek out other men who will help you see labor and family as a blessing. View Resource

  • The Thief of Time Devotional

    Proverbs 10:5

    If you are guilty of procrastination, confess it to the Lord. Before the day begins, consider what you need to accomplish that day and commit to doing those things in an orderly time frame. This also applies to spiritual matters. Do not delay confession, prayer, or service to God. Serve Him now, for tomorrow may not come. View Resource

  • Ordering Your Time Devotional

    Proverbs 24:27

    Proverbs 24:27 deals with setting priorities. Take care of important things first, and order your days according to set priorities. Today make a list of your responsibilities and activities.

  • Persevering Diligence Devotional

    Proverbs 10:4, 26

    During the day today, consciously fill every moment with productive activity (including eating and necessary rest). Refrain from wasting time. If you find your day filled already, are you doing too much? Are you often rushed? If so, think about what you need to restructure or cut out to enable you to accomplish your goals well. View Resource
