LESSONS FROM CHAPTER 11
1. If money motivates you, greed will control your actions. If God empowers you, His purpose for your life will control you. This is true because the love of money promotes corrupt morals and perverted values. The need to accumulate more and more material wealth overshadows God’s concerns of truth and honesty until deception and dishonesty determines what you do and how you do it.
2. Work is a blessing that reveals what you can do. It is the master key to releasing your potential. Work produces more personal growth and satisfaction than rest does.
3. If you are unfulfilled, you are probably resting too much. Until we let go of our hideout attempts to receive benefits without effort, we will forfeit the blessings of work, because work is God’s pathway to a satisfying, meaningful existence.
4. You cannot fulfill your purpose without work. God gives you work to meet your personal fulfillment. When you try to get something for nothing you miss the opportunity to find gratification, because effort is the key to satisfaction.
5. God wants you to fulfill all that He created you to do and be, that’s why He is constantly giving you tasks that reveal more and more of the wealth that lies hidden within you.
God bless you.
