The Value of hardwork

#wealthseries #wealthwednesday The other day I read Matthew 17:27 which says "Nevertheless, lest we offend them, go to the sea, cast in a hook, and take the fish that comes up first. And when you have opened its mouth, you will find a piece of money;[a] take that and give it to them for Me and you.” When I read this I pondered. I thought Lord, how come you didn't just give Peter money or tell him to pick money from the floor or from a tree? Why did you tell him to go to the sea? Why didn't money just appear in your hand for you to give him?  I believe The Lord revealed the following. Money is man made. Money comes from work. Money comes from hard work. Peter was a fisherman so Jesus sent him to work to get money.Peter literally had to get his boat, go to sea and then put down his net to fish.  Jesus showed Him the SOURCE of money which is the work/fish. I believe God has called all of us to work. Let us pray that He reveals the source of money I.e. The type of work we should be doing. Many of us are working in an area that God has not sent us. Let us ask for His direction. Let us also embrace the work He has given us and do it well. Let us not despise HARD WORK for that is the source of money. There are no quick fixes. The problem with our generation is that we want it now. We haven't been taught the value of hard work. We are called the micro wave generation. The Bibke says the wicked spring up like grass but the righteous flourish like the palm tree and grow like the cedar in Lebanon. Grass grows fast but it is also cut and discarded very early in its life cycle. However a palm tree grows slowly but lives for hundreds of years and continues to bear fruit. The same with the cedar tree from Lebanon. If you are working hard but haven't seen the fruit of your labour yet, don't despair, don't give up. Your time is coming. #beinspired #beencouraged #wealth #money #success #hardwork
