PREVAILING VOICE DAILY

Topic: PRODUCTIVE AND PROGRESSIVE.
Text: Titus 3:14.
14: And let our own [people really] learn to apply themselves to good deeds (to honest labor and honorable employment), so that they may be able to meet necessary demands whenever the occasion may require and not be living idle and uncultivated and unfruitful lives. Amplified.
The Bible discussed every issue of life. In Apostle Paul’s letter to Titus, he discussed an important subject. Apostle Paul preached total gospel. Many people taught it was only spiritual matters he discussed, but as I give attention to his letters I discovered that he spoke extensively about other areas of life.
In our text today he instructed Titus in clear terms, he said, ‘ And let our own [people really] learn to apply themselves to good deeds ‘, one would have thought the good deeds refers to good behavior. No, the Greek word for deed in that verse is ‘ ergon ‘ meaning toil as in effort or occupation, deed, doing, labour, work.
Let’s take a look at verse 14 critically, ‘ let our own people really learn how to apply themselves to honest labour ‘, it was obvious that Paul was actually addressing a case of lack among the brethren in Crete where Titus was pastoring.
I see Paul saying let our people learn skills, Businesses, work that will be productive. Paul wasn’t just asking them to wait upon the Lord, rather he instructed them to find something to do.
The later part of our text gives details about what Paul meant. Look at it here ‘ not be living idle and uncultivated and unfruitful lives ‘.
Everyone doing well financially leant a business or skill. The first key to prosperity is learning not seed sowing as some preachers teach, except they mean sowing time into learning and spending money on learning.
To be progressive you must learn from someone who is progressive and productive.
If you are productive you can improve your level of productivity, you have something fetching you good income now, you can get another one. You can multiple sources of income.
Our progress and productivity is in our readiness to learn and engage in productive activities, learn to add values. Don’t continue to rely on salary, activate other sources that can earn you good income and the Lord shall bless the works of your hands in Jesus name.
* Lord bless the works of hands in Jesus name.
