Do not lay idle today. Find at least one thing to do!

Morning and Evening

Morning, November 26

Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might. – Eccl 9:10

“Whatever your hand finds to do,” refers to works that are possible. There are many things which our heart finds to do which we never shall do. It is well it is in our heart; but if we would be eminently useful, we must not be content with forming schemes in our heart, and talking of them; we must practically carry out “whatever our hand finds to do.” One good deed is more worth than a thousand brilliant theories!

Let us not wait for large opportunities, or for a different kind of work but do just the things we “find to do” day by day. We have no other time in which to live. The past is gone; the future has not arrived; we never shall have any time but time present. Then do not wait until your experience has ripened into maturity, before you attempt to serve God. Endeavor now to bring forth fruit.

Serve God now but be careful as to the way in which you perform what you find to do, “do it with all your might.” Do it promptly; do not fritter away your life in thinking of what you intend to do tomorrow, as if that could recompense for the idleness of today. No man ever served God by doing things tomorrow. If we honor Christ and are blessed—it is by the things which we do today.

Whatever you do for Christ—throw your whole soul into it. Do not give Christ a little slurred labor, done as a matter of course now and then; but when you do serve Him—do it with heart, and soul, and strength.

But where is the might of a Christian? It is not in himself, for he is total weakness. His might lies in the Lord Almighty. Then let us seek His help; let us proceed with prayer and faith, and when we have done what our “hand finds to do,” let us wait upon the Lord for His blessing. What we do thus will be well done and will not fail in its effect.
