When you labor at your job, there is profit.
When you labor while volunteering in church there is profit.
When you labor while at home there is profit.
Labor is defined as "productive activity, especially for the sake of economic gain"
It could be either physical or mental work. There is gain to be made in your daily work according the Word of God.
The second part of verse 23 tells us, "the talk of the lips tendeth only to penury."
I looked up the word penury, and it means 1. extreme poverty; destitution.
2. scarcity; dearth; inadequacy; insufficiency.
When we are laboring, or working, there is profit.
When we are only talking and taking no action, it brings extreme poverty and destitution; scarcity and lack.
Be an action taker. Do what you say you will do.
Complete what you start. You will be rewarded for what you do, not for what you say you will do.
Pray this prayer with me:
"Our heavenly Father, bless the labor of my hands. Bless all the work that I do. Let me be a doer of the Word and not a hearer only. Let me be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever I do shall prosper. Let me be a blessing to others. We ask this in the name of Jesus, amen."
We have been praying for you, our faithful partners in the ministry. We are so thankful for you. Many pray for us and it means so much to Josie and I.
We need your prayers and your financial help. We labor in ministry sharing the Gospel. This past Saturday we fed approximately 40 children at a local elementary school in our neighborhood. We not only fed them physically, we shared the Gospel message with them. We played games with them and everyone had fun.
We are making a difference in the lives of these children and their families. The smiles on their faces touched my heart. Please help us to continue to reach out to these children and their families.
Please sow a financial gift to this ministry so we can continue sharing the Gospel.
