Whistle While You Work

Glory hallelujah, it's another sunny day! Does anyone ever get used to this? Do people who live in the sun belt wake up and say, "Ho hum, another sunny day. Guess I'll go back to bed." Of course, they do.

Boredom seems to be a central component of natural man's thinking. It's only when God enters our lives--showing us a glimpse of all He has for us in the heavenlies--that we begin to view our days on earth with anticipation. What will He show me today? Who will He send my way today? How will He conform me to the image of Christ today?

God doesn't like it when His children are bored anymore than we like it when our children are "bored." One wise mother said, "Only a boring person is bored." With all that awaits us, let's face the future with anticipation, pressing on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called us heavenward in Christ Jesus.

Rain or shine, we have a job to do. Let's whistle while we work . . . and rejoice evermore.
