“God is far more interested in what you are than what you do.” – And WHAT YOU DO has a lot to do in SHAPING WHO YOU ARE.
“While you’re working on your job, God is working on you. What God is doing in you is more important than what you’re doing.”
Here is the outline from last Sunday’s teaching.
“In everything you do put God first and He will direct you and crown your efforts with success.” Proverbs 3:6 (LB)
1. Work with a PURPOSE.
“An intelligent man aims at wise actions, but a fool starts off in many directions.” Proverbs 17:24 (GN)
“A wise man thinks ahead. A fool doesn’t and even brags about it.” Proverbs 13:6 (LB)
2. Insist on INTEGRITY.
“GOD cares about honesty in the workplace; your business is His business.” Proverbs 16:11 (Msg)
“Do not lie to one another since you taken off your old self with its practices and have put on the new self which
is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.” Colossians 3:9-10 (NIV)
3. Never make EXCUSES.
“The lazy person is full of excuses…” Proverbs 12:33 (NIV)
4. Never stop LEARNING.
“Intelligent people want to learn, but stupid people are satisfied with ignorance.” Proverbs 15:14 (LB)
Where can we learn?
GOD’S WORD (Proverbs 13:13)
WISE PEOPLE (Proverbs 13:10 )
CRITICS (Proverbs 19:20)
FAILURE (Proverbs 28:13)
5. Economize your TIME and ENERGY
“Teach us to number our days” Psalm 90:12 (NIV)
6. Resolve to STICK WITH IT.
“Do you know a hard working man? He shall be successful and stand before kings.” Proverbs 22:29 (LB)
‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’ Matthew 25:21 (niv)
Really looking forward to next week...PFA Rocks!
