神爱世人,甚至将他的独生子赐给他们,叫一切信他的,
不至灭亡,反得永生。(约3:16)

努力工作 Work

读经

“耕种自己田地的,必得饱食; 追随虚浮的,足受穷乏。”  箴言 28:19 

A hard worker has plenty of food, but a person who chases fantasies ends up in poverty.  P R O V E R B S 2 8 : 1 9

默想

你听过一些荒谬的故事吧。一些幸运儿买彩票中了大奖,结果还破了产,因为他入不敷出。金山银山,都经不起无度挥霍。有梦想有激情是好事。游历天下也是一个好的人生计划。期待着发洋财也不是坏事。

但是,一般来说,稳定的生活,有吃有穿,还需要踏踏实实的努力工作。天上不会掉馅饼,银行存款也不会自动增加。看看那些曾经出名的明星、一度流行的歌手,多少人因为奢侈和懒惰而穷困潦倒。

You’ve heard the stories, right? Some lucky guy strikes it rich in the state lottery, only to squander it all away carelessly. All of his money didn’t stand a chance against all of his spending. What once seemed like an endless supply of resources one day leaked away to nothing. It’s great to have dreams and have passions. It’s wonderful to want to travel and play. It’s even okay to pray for an unexpected windfall.

But, ordinarily, to truly obtain the sort of stable life that puts food on the plate and clothes on the back takes healthy planning and hard work. Food doesn’t magically appear on the plate and savings don’t miraculously appear in the account. Ask any aging pop-culture child superstar or any one-hit musical wonder. The combination of fantastical consumption mixed with a lazy attitude depletes the reservoirs of life.

祷告

耶稣,让我踏踏实实做人、勤奋工作。阿们。

Jesus, kick my butt into gear. Let me become known as a hard worker and a person of character. Amen.

行动

不要拖拉。做好该做的事情,然后再放松。

No procrastination on any projects today. Finish your to-do list before allowing yourself to play.
