Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“It is a pleasure to see the fruits of your hard work in progress ripen with maturity, patience, sweat, and tears when no one is around to see you doing the work!” ~ Jon Barnes

Tension

As your muscles flex they become tense so that you can engage in the work needed for your assignment.  This daily exercise pushes you forward with plans and assignments to complete. Tension and release are required to maximize efficiency and balance, whereas laziness is constantly at rest, looking at everyone else doing the work.

Effort

There are many ways to apply good effort and it is up to you to find which application fits your work ethic. Something positive must be accomplished by your hands if you want to grow, develop, and mature. When no effort is applied, your muscles shrivel up and die. Work time is not relaxation time and too many people are doing careless work, wanting to get paid for bad service and quality.

Relaxation

People who love God and their work will live by faith and not by their talent and money. Relax in the joy of the Lord and your work will seem like playing at the park.  God always supplies the equipment and means to work in his fields. Be relieved that God is just and true to His Work and honors His Laborers with ripped fruit.
Today’s Question
Are you a Laborer or a Liar?
 

1 Samuel 29 

The Philistines Reject David

29 The entire Philistine army now mobilized at Aphek, and the Israelites camped at the spring in Jezreel. As the Philistine rulers were leading out their troops in groups of hundreds and thousands, David and his men marched at the rear with King Achish. But the Philistine commanders demanded, “What are these Hebrews doing here?”
And Achish told them, “This is David, the servant of King Saul of Israel. He’s been with me for years, and I’ve never found a single fault in him from the day he arrived until today.”
But the Philistine commanders were angry. “Send him back to the town you’ve given him!” they demanded. “He can’t go into the battle with us. What if he turns against us in battle and becomes our adversary? Is there any better way for him to reconcile himself with his master than by handing our heads over to him? Isn’t this the same David about whom the women of Israel sing in their dances,
‘Saul has killed his thousands,
    and David his ten thousands’?”
So Achish finally summoned David and said to him, “I swear by the Lord that you have been a trustworthy ally. I think you should go with me into battle, for I’ve never found a single flaw in you from the day you arrived until today. But the other Philistine rulers won’t hear of it. Please don’t upset them, but go back quietly.”
“What have I done to deserve this treatment?” David demanded. “What have you ever found in your servant, that I can’t go and fight the enemies of my lord the king?”
But Achish insisted, “As far as I’m concerned, you’re as perfect as an angel of God. But the Philistine commanders are afraid to have you with them in the battle.10 Now get up early in the morning, and leave with your men as soon as it gets light.”
11 So David and his men headed back into the land of the Philistines, while the Philistine army went on to Jezreel.
Love,
Jonathan
