Saturday, August 8

To do your will, O my God, is my delight.—Ps. 40:8.


Do you have one or more spiritual goals that you are working toward? Perhaps you are trying to read portions of the Bible each day. Or you may be trying to improve your speaking and teaching abilities. Whatever the case, when you see positive results—or others see them and commend you—how do you feel? No doubt you feel a sense of achievement and joy. And so you should, in no small part because you are putting God’s will ahead of your own, in imitation of Jesus. (Prov. 27:11) By focusing on spiritual pursuits, you are also doing a work that is truly satisfying because it is not in the least futile. The apostle Paul wrote: “Be steadfast, immovable, always having plenty to do in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in connection with the Lord.” (1 Cor. 15:58) By comparison, a life marked by secular ambitions and pursuits—even if these seem very successful—is ultimately a life of futility.—Luke 9:25. w18.12 22 ¶12-13

You can't walk with God while holding hands with the Devil.

I like the point that the apostle Paul made in 1 Cor 15:58...

knowing that your labor is not in vain in connection with the Lord.
By contrast , secular goals are ultimately a life of futility. (Luke 9:25). (A lot of refuse)

Jehovah remembers everything we do in his service.  Hebrews 6:10

1 John 4:1 "Beloved ones, do not believe every inspired statement, but test the inspired statements to see whether they originate with God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world."
