”Even a mosquito doesn’t get a slap on the back until it starts to work”
– Work hard so God can say to you,”Well done”. Be a good workman, one who does not need to be ashamed when God examines your work… 2 Timothy 2:15(TLB).
Not only are each of us called to overcome our own faults,weaknesses and limitations, but we are asked to exercise our strengths. ”Just surviving” isn’t what we are challenged to do. We are destined to use our talents for God’s purposes, putting all our minds,hearts and energy to the work He sets before us.

– Marriage should be honoured by all, and the marriage bed kept pure,for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral. Hebrews 13:4 (NIV).

Being focused, dedicated,and disciplined will make the difference between a medicore life and a great life.
