eSeed: The Strenuous Life

Read 1 Timothy 4:14-16 TLB

Teddy Roosevelt lived every day with gusto. He was never known to rest, except when he slept.

He was called, “The Apostle Of The Strenuous Life.”

By “strenuous” he meant using your brain as well as your brawn, being enthusiastic as well as engaging.

But while he was busy, his life wasn’t barren. He produced, he didn’t just piddle.

The Bible says, “Be sure you use the abilities God has given you…Put these abilities to work; throw yourself into your tasks so that everyone may notice your progress…Stay true to what is right, and God will bless you and use you to help others.”

Prayer: Keep us, Father, from being complacent and careless. Deliver us from doing sloppy and shoddy work. Constrain us to be our best, to do our best and to live our best for Thee at all times: in the name of Jesus Christ, our
Lord. Amen.
