STOP AND THINK – I never met a man who led a life of ease whose name is worth remembering. (Theodore Roosevelt, 26th president of the United States)

Someone jokingly said, “I’m not afraid of work, I can lie down right beside it and go to sleep.” And yet work is a gift of God; He created man to work, to till the garden and tend the animals. Nothing of lasting value is accomplished without hard work. Roosevelt was right. If you want to be remembered, get to work and do something worthwhile.

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters (Colossians 3:23). Acknowledge those who work hard among you… Hold them in the highest regard in love because of their work (1 Thessalonians 5:12).
