Evaluate Labor in the LORD

Thursday, September 16, 1993
Journal Entry-
“every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labor.” 1 Cor.3:8

If our rewards are issued according to our labor,
then shall we not evaluate how our labor is coming?
Am I diligent? Slothful? Consistent?

“…preach…teaching…that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus.
For this I also labor…” Col.1:28-29

“…the harvest is plenteous, but the laborers are few…” Matt.9:37

“…laboring fervently for you in prayers,
that ye may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God.” Col.4:12

Help me, Oh God, to evaluate these three areas of labor in my life!
When I coached, I had to continually evaluate how we were doing in certain areas-
OFFENSE- DEFENSE- SPECIALTY TEAMS.
Doing well in one did not generate success in another area.
And so it is in the spiritual realm.
Help me to identify my problem areas and do something about them.

Practical Application:
Designate time to evaluate
Write out what I am doing in each of these three areas
Write out specific improvements I need to make
