Summary: Let us open our eyes today and search for the opportunity to do what is good. Let us seek to live a deeply productive ministry life today.
Titus 3:14: “Our people must learn to devote themselves to doing what is good, in order to provide for urgent needs and not live unproductive lives.”
Ministry is not a 9-5 job, right? Ministry is a calling. When viewed correctly, ministry is a lifestyle choice. The demand and duties of ministry often do not fit neatly into a Monday-Friday, workday template. Ministry is just not that cut and dried. Ministry is not that clean and simple. Ministry, you see, is messy.
As those who have taken up the mantle of ministry, we are devoted to what is good. You, oh servant, meet urgent needs. There is not a time clock, per say, in a ministry role. We do not have a “clock-in-and-clock-out-type” job. We are devoted to giving ourselves to this worthy cause. It feels good to do good. It feels good to meet an urgent need. It is a high and royal calling to lead a productive life for the Kingdom of God.
Let us open our eyes today and search for the opportunity to do what is good. Let us have an awareness of an urgent need and joyfully allow that need to hijack today’s agenda. Let us seek to live a deeply productive life today. Will you pray, right now, to allow God permission to dislodge your best human plans for doing His will today?
