Slack not

You expected much, but received only a little. And when you brought it home, I made that little disappear. Why have I done this? It’s because you hurry off to build your own houses while my temple is still in ruins. ~ Haggai 1:9 (CEV)

Never give up. Eagerly follow the Holy Spirit and serve the Lord. ~ Romans 12:11 (CEV)

When it comes to serving the Lord don't slack off.
Creator God, you have called us all to a beautiful and expansive life of grace, fellowship, and service. I confess I sometimes prefer a narrower, more comfortable life. Open my heart to enter the spacious realm for which you called me into being -- the fullness of life in Christ's amazing love. Amen. (Daily Texts, Mount Carmel Ministries edition)
