On a regular basis we evaluate what jobs we will accomplish that day. Each of us has 24 hours to try to accomplish what is needed. There are so many things that pull at us and DEMAND our attention and time. Sometimes it is a real struggle to know what to do first! There are some things that are obvious...a deadline, an appointment....things that are a commitment. But while we want to show forth excellence, it is easy to feel overwhelmed.
Prioritize...this gets your head above water every time.
Our job description is not how much we get accomplished, but the way it is accomplished.
We are to show excellence in our endeavors, but foremost our given job description is SALT and LIGHT
These actions and attributes will place us in areas of authority, service, and recognition.
In the natural world as well as the spiritual world, what is sown is reaped.
At times, I find myself being pepper instead of salt. It may be hot but it is not digested.
Our actions should make others thirsty for the good things of God.
When we commit ourselves and our given job/ or duties to the Lord, we will be light.
This action causes blurry to come into focus and darkness to scatter. Fear not...be a light. Everything can be diligently accomplished if you remember and commit to your job description as a child of God.
Remember...we are to be(active verb=action) SALT and LIGHT.
Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
