*DAILY DEW 3/OCTOBER/2022* *"BITTER TRUTH"* _Key Bible Text:_ *"I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive."* (Acts 20:35 (KJV)) _Bible Insight:_ We just throw around fancy words in the body of Christ; words that have no biblical support whatsoever. For instance, 'You aren't going to the labour market, it's a favour market'. That's how we've produced people seeking a raise through their praise without working real hard and smart. Well, the reality is that the bible doesn't suggest anything close to this where work or career is concerned. At Acts 20:35, Paul says he laboured day and night to cater for himself and the necessities of others. At 2 Thessalonians 3:7-8, he says he and his team worked with labour and toil night and day, so as not to be a burden to anyone. At Ephesians 4:28, the believer is instructed to labour with his hands. Isn't it amazing that to qualify to be admitted into this so-called 'favour market', you have to labour to read, study hard to pass exams and interviews? Employer of labour, not favour. Yes, you can be favoured anywhere but that doesn't change the fact that you are in a labour market. The problem is that many assume the word 'labour' is a curse. No, it isn't. There's 'good labour' and there's 'labouring in vain'. As a matter of fact, Proverbs 13:11 says he who gathers by labour will increase, as opposed to gaining wealth through dishonesty. Labour isn't a negative word. In fact, the work of God on the earth today is described as labour. Another word for 'labour' is work. So, imagine saying, I don't have a work desk, it's a mercyseat🤦 Alright, sha work hard on this your mercyseat. _MEDITATION:_ *"Blessed is every one that feareth the LORD; that walketh in his ways. For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands: happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee."* (Psalms 128:1-2 (KJV)) *#Adebowe_Ibukun_Tosin* *#Daily_Wisdom_for_living* *#Becoming_More_Like_Jesus* *#The_Rise_of_An_Army* *#Daily_Dew_Devotional* *#Guest_Message* *#Hello_OCTOBER* ❤ Links To Visit: *FB Pages* https://www.facebook.com/DavidJoshuaEgbochuo/ https://www.facebook.com/thedavidgen/ https://www.facebook.com/THEREVIVALCORPS/ *Telegram Group:* https://t.me/joinchat/NzXQlVc9Hx7LfaRSnh9fHg *WhatsApp Group:* http://bit.ly/The_David_Generation Feel Free to Share with Friends.
