Our scripture for the Daily Devotional today is taken from Proverbs 6:6-14. What are the characteristics of someone that you would consider dangerous? Would you be wary of the one who motions with their finger?

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.

How long will you lie there, you sluggard?
    When will you get up from your sleep?
10 A little sleep, a little slumber,
    a little folding of the hands to rest—
11 and poverty will come on you like a thief
    and scarcity like an armed man.

12 A troublemaker and a villain,
    who goes about with a corrupt mouth,
13     who winks maliciously with his eye,
    signals with his feet
    and motions with his fingers,
14     who plots evil with deceit in his heart—
    he always stirs up conflict.”

Are you sly and deceitful?

We all dream of the day that we can awaken to an empty calendar. Retirement beckons a tired and weary mind and body. 

Independence and the lack of accountability are usually met with laziness and relaxation. If you didn’t have a boss and need to work, what would you do each day? A self-employed person or entrepreneur personifies passion, ethics, and the character of the ant. We hear many people that if you do something that you love, that you will never work a day in your life. Working unto God means that you work for the most rewarding position ever.

God calls us to wisely apply our minds, bodies, and souls to His plans. Providing for yourself and your family with your sweat. Let us work an honest days labor for God’s glory.

Let’s Pray

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank you, Father, that You provide for my needs and those around me through my labor. Help me to remember that You are the Lord of my work. May You be glorified through my efforts and heart.

In Jesus Name,
