OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR TEENS SATURDAY 3RD MARCH 2018: EXCUSE FACTORY
MEMORISE: The sluggard will not plow by the reason of the cold; therefore shall he beg in the harvest, and have nothing. Proverbs 20:4
Please read: Luke 14:16-24
A sluggard is one who hates work. He or she is idle and attracts pain and disappointment to
those who depend on him. If your parents cannot
depend on you to carry out your chores, you are
a sluggard, if you repeatedly fail to submit your
assignments as at when due, you are a sluggard.
If you do not know how to manage your time well, you are a sluggard. Time is one of the greatest assets on earth, and you are supposed
to use it to equip yourself in needed skills, knowledge and education.
A sluggard will give reasons and excuses to explain why they are not equipping themselves and getting anything done with their time, but in actual fact, they are mismanaging their time and allowing their life to waste away. A sluggard is
destined to fail.
Reject every excuse for failure no matter how reasonable it sounds. Don’t be an
Wherever excuse is present, there must be losses
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
1. When we walk with the Lord in the light of His
What a glory He sheds on our way!
While we do His good will,
He abides with us still,
And with all who will trust and obey.
Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.
2. Not a shadow can rise, not a cloud in the
But His smile quickly drives it away;
Not a doubt or a fear, not a sigh or a tear,
Can abide while we trust and obey.
3. Not a burden we bear, not a sorrow we share,
But our toil He doth richly repay;
Not a grief or a loss, not a frown or a cross,
But is blessed if we trust and obey.
4.But we never can prove the delights of His
Until all on the altar we lay;
For the favor He shows, for the joy He bestows,
Are for them who will trust and obey.
5. Then in fellowship sweet we will sit at His
Or we’ll walk by His side in the way;
What He says we will do, where He sends we will
Never fear, only trust and obey.
