Diligence Makes The Difference

cb devo sept3“Day after day, in the temple courts and from house to house, they never stopped teaching and proclaiming the good news that Jesus is the Messiah.” Acts 5:42

When my sister Lilian and I were in high school, I was always involved in things that had to do with writing and the arts. Lilian was always involved with athletic activities, more specifically track and field competitions.

I admired my sister’s persistence and diligence as she practiced her running in any type of weather. She loved working out and to this day, she is an avid runner. On the other hand, the only thing that associates me with running is the word “errands.” I’m a non-athletic person who, in spite of not being sedentary, do not apply myself to any specific sport or athletic activity other than an occasional game of Frisbee. A fall and severe ankle break last year tragically ended that career.

Persistence and diligence were Jesus’ trademark while He was on this earth. His time was spent speaking to the multitudes about His Father’s kingdom. The Bible does not make mention of a man who took vacations or sat around doing nothing. On the contrary, from a very young age, Jesus was said to be mingling with teachers at the synagogue. He participated in prayer meetings with His disciples, as well as intervened on behalf of the sick and the oppressed by healing them. He turned water into wine, calmed storms, saved adulterous women from being stoned, raised the dead back to life, opened the ears of the deaf and the eyes of the blind. Jesus even prayed in the garden in the wee hours of the night, and so much more. He will always be associated with being a role model to those who consistently and constantly devote themselves to the purpose for which they were created.

Though I do not break a sweat like my sister while doing my writings, my love for God and the written word keeps me excited about what to write next. You are important to the Kingdom of God and you can make a difference for Him. Be the best you can be for Him.

“Dear Lord, thank You for knitting us together with gifts and talents we can use for Your glory.”

For His Glory
