Hello and thanks for joining in on to today’s daily devotion. Today is Saturday. January 30th. The 7th day of the Hebraic week. And every body says HalleluYah.
Our verse today is 2 Tim. 2:15
15 Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.
We’ve all heard this verse before, right? Well, what I want us to focus on here more than anything in this verse is the first three words. “Do your best.” Those three words puts an emphasis on the rest of the verse. Yet it’s those three words that I believe are looked over all too easily.
You see, we can do many things. But when we try to do our best at something, well, that changes our approach to that task. Think of the days when you had certain classes in school. How many classes did we try to get through with the least amount of effort applied? See my point?
We can’t take this life that He has given us light heartedly. Make it appoint to live your life to be approved by God, not the world. We have to apply all of our heart to learning and growing in Him. We have to dig into His Word and, in turn, let His Word dig into us. We have to let His Word change us from the inside out. Just don’t forget… “Do your best.”
Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until tomorrow, shalom!
