SEEK TO BE MORE
Intelligent people are always ready to learn. Their ears are open for knowledge.
Proverbs 18:15 NLT
One of the common things that all successful people have is that they enhance their knowledge every day. They gain their success faster because they are open and active learners. As they grow higher in the success ladder, they face more complex problems and opportunities that are presented to them. This requires them to learn everything they can that they master their affairs well.
The Bible encourages us to enhance our scriptural knowledge every day. It encourages us to read the word of God that we may be successful in life. God told Joshua these words, “Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditates on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful, Joshua 1:8."
While we are needed to read the word of God that we may grow in the spirit. We also supposed to read materials that are related to the fields that we are in. Learning will help us enhance our knowledge and be competent in our fields. It will increase our confidence and make us to be effective on whatever we do in life.
This morning, I want to challenge you to seek to be more. Seek to excel more on whatever you do in life. The people of this world do whatever they can to reach their dreams and they try to work hard that they may one day live comfortable life. Christians should work hard and learn whatever they can that they may succeed on what they do.
You need to learn to save that you may prepare yourself unforeseen events in life. You need to always have something that will help someone who is in need. Christians need to have enough money to support the work of the Gospel and different projects in the Church. This will not be attained by praying alone, we need to go out there and work as hard as anyone else. We cannot substitute prayers with work, we need to do both that we may be on the top of both spiritual and physical worlds.
Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....
Dear Father, help me to be ready to learn always that I may increase my knowledge in all areas of my life. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
