Not all work is the same. Some things are much more important in the Kingdom than others. I shouldn’t waste my time on useless, fruitless work.
God is clear that some things we focus on just don’t produce any results. They are useless. They are a tree that doesn’t bear any fruit.
God’s goal for us is that we focus on His Kingdom and expose anything that isn’t productive.
Am I just doing busywork? Do I see that as a sham? How would this look in the light of Jesus and His glory?
May I know what He wants me to do and may I do it with enthusiasm!!
6 Let no one deceive you with empty arguments, for God’s wrath is coming on the disobedient because of these things. 7 Therefore, do not become their partners. 8 For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light— 9 for the fruit of the light consists of all goodness, righteousness, and truth— 10 testing what is pleasing to the Lord. 11 Don’t participate in the fruitless works of darkness, but instead expose them. 12 For it is shameful even to mention what is done by them in secret. 13 Everything exposed by the light is made visible, 14 for what makes everything visible is light.
