Sermon synopsis: 'Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.' - Abraham Lincoln
Hard work, determination and energy can accomplish only so much. Sometimes what a worker needs to do most is, “sharpen the axe”
How do we do this when we have so much to do and so little time to do it? We can go for specialized training, receive addition education, or attend seminars and conferences, however there are some simple practical Biblical guide-lines that will make us more effective.
- Dedicate your work to God
-Pray for wisdom.
- Trust in His direction.
- Get enough rest.
