Ecclesiastes 9:10


Ecclesiastes 9:10  Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might, for in the grave, where you are going, there is neither working nor planning nor knowledge nor wisdom.


Lord Jesus, “Life is short; play hard” the slogan says.  In many ways there is so much truth to that.  By your grace you not only put me here on this earth, but you made me your own.  Your life and the blessings of forgiveness and salvation you secured for me give my life purpose and direction – to serve you with all that I have and in all that I do.  Forgive me for being lazy and lacking zeal in my work, in my personal responsibilities and in the work of your Church which you have specifically given to me.  Help me approach each day with the attitude, “Life is short.  Play hard.”  May your love for me inspire me to serve you with great joy and enthusiasm in all that I say and do.  In your name I pray.  Amen.
