(The) Word of the day is “Spuddle,” (17th century idiom)
A lot of different words have been used over the years to describe working ineffectively or being extremely busy while accomplishing absolutely nothing. It may mean to work feebly and ineffectively, because your mind is elsewhere or you’re not quite awake yet. We ought to be careful that we aren’t just “spuddling” when we are expected to accomplish something of value.
Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people (Colossians 3:23).
