Getting the most with the least amount of effort has become the American motto of choice. (William E. Brown, college executive and author)
If Brown is right, what an indictment of modern America! The United States of America has been known for its fighting spirit, win at any cost, from the Revolutionary War to present-day recessions and conflicts. What has happened to that spirit of adventure and the work ethic that has achieved so much good for so many people? Anything worth achieving requires hard work.
Work hard so you can present yourself to God and receive his approval. Be a good worker, one who does not need to be ashamed. (2 Timothy 2:15)
