A devotional by Joyce Meyer
"The hand of the diligent will rule, but the slothful will be put to forced labor.
Don't spend your day looking for something easy to do instead of tackling the hard things that need to be done. Do the hard things first, the ones you dislike the most, and get them out of the way. For example, don't look at your distasteful jobs and think, I will do those later. The hard tasks will nag at you all day long and drain your energy for doing the things you want to do.
The spirit of passivity will rob you of productive energy, but you have the power of God in you to over come procrastination. Pray and ask God to help you finish the tasks you have been dreading. Work on what is important first, and soon they will no longer be ruling or running your day.
I don't know who needs this today, but I felt someone might.
