Day 21 – Don’t give Excuses


 ‘The sluggard will not plough by reason of the cold therefore shall he beg in harvest and have nothing’ Proverbs  20:4

When it is cold, it is naturally understandable for a farmer to keep indoors; however the Bible says here that anybody who does not plough because of the cold is a lazy person. I think what God is saying is ‘don’t give excuses for your laziness based on even obvious reasons’.

When you are someone that always finds excuses to give for your inability to accomplish a task, it may look legitimate, but a day will come when your boss will be willing to be understanding with you no more.

You have to make up your mind, no matter what the weather or the situation is like, that you will brace up and do what is expected of you. Determine that in-spite of the obstacles, you will forge ahead. The working environment might not be friendly or conducive; do not look for excuses, but be determined that despite the challenges, you will arise and achieve what is expected of you. As you do this, you will prosper in all your life’s pursuits.
