The one who steals must steal no longer; rather he must labor, doing good with his own hands, so that he may have something to share with the one who has need. — Eph 4:28 NET
Our duty is to be useful, not according to our desires, but according to our powers.
How good is man’s life, the mere living! how fit to employ All the heart and the soul and the senses for ever in joy!
— Robert Browning.
Do something! No man is born with a mortgage on his soul; but every man is born a debtor to Time. Meet this obligation before you find too late that your life is impoverished and you cannot redeem it.
My Father, what I have left out of my life I know I cannot recover now. I pray that I may give the best to what is left. Make me deliberate, that I may prove my earnestness. Make me industrious, that I may use my best resources to develop my life and further thy kingdom. Amen.
