After reading this verse the first time, I thought that this has an obvious message. While the message is plainly stated I wondered what “worthless pursuits” would be. Too often appropriate activities become worthless pursuits when we let them become more important than God. We need to consistently work on our priorities.
Hard work provides for our needs. Focusing on God shows wisdom. A win-win situation.
Dear Heavenly Father, please help me to set priorities that honor You. Please help me to be good example of the provisions hard work brings. Thank You for all You do.
I pray this in Jesus’ name.
God is so good.
