A Warning to Slackers

Today’s reading: Jeremiah 46:1-48:47

My selection: Jeremiah 48:10

10 “Cursed is he who does the work of the Lord with slackness, and cursed is he who keeps back his sword from bloodshed.

My reflections: In his prophecy against Moab, Jeremiah delivers this dire declaration. It is not enough merely to not commit evil. It is not enough to do the work of the Lord in a perfunctory manner. Slackness in doing the work of the Lord brings a curse. If we are called to do His work, we are called to do it with wholeheartedness. We may not simply go through the motions.

My challenge: What has God called you to do? Do you do it with all your might? Grandpa used to say “that’s good enough for government labor” and we all laughed.

But it is not good enough for the Lord’s work.

Do His work with excellence. Do not be a Moabite slacker.

Tomorrow’s reading: Jeremiah 49:1-39
