I have glorified You on the earth. I have finished the work which You have given Me to do.
There is an old saying in business, "busy is not productive." Imagine having an employee who seemed to do everything under the sun, except what you asked them to do. Would you be happy with that employee? When we take on jobs that were not assigned to us, two things usually happen. We do a poor job on the assumed task, and we don't finish the assigned task.
To be a productive Christian, we must accomplish the work we were given. This means that we need a good understanding of what we are being asked to do. The only way to be sure is to ask. Jesus modeled this for us. It was His habit to rise early, find some time alone, and ask for directions from His Father.
Today, make it your prayer to not be too busy to accomplish the Lord’s will.
