Before I begin, let me wish my “twin” Abram a happy 9th birthday. He’s my friend’s son, and we share the same birth day. I also want to wish my paternal aunts Karen and Kathy a happy birthday. I look forward to seeing them in a few days. Last but not least, I want to honor my maternal great aunt—the late Earline B. Slaughter, whose birthday is also today. She would have been 88 years young.
You will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours.
If you work hard you will reap the rewards of your labor. If you do nothing you will get nothing. If you have expectations for growth and prosperity yet you do nothing to earn it, you are short-sided and will end up empty-handed.
Father, thank You for the abundance of blessings. Thank You for my life, my mind, my freedom, and the ability to work. Father I know that You despise laziness, so everyday I actively take part in my life, doing and being more than the last day. Thank You for Your loving care today and always. Amen.
