Don’t Waste your Vacation

“If you can manage a day, you can manage your life.”

-Dr. Mike Murdock

For many people, the vacation is a period to kill time, to relax, and to get away from the drudgery of academic work. Your youth is a critical period in your life for preparation and training. God does not want you to be aimless. A gun which does not aim in a definite direction will fire in any direction, causing havoc and destruction. However, a gun aimed in a specific direction at a definite target gives a clean shot. What’s your life going to be like in 10 years to come?

Take note of this Proverb:

“Take a lesson from the ants, you lazybones.

    Learn from their ways and become wise!

7 Though they have no prince

    or governor or ruler to make them work,

8 they labor hard all summer,

    gathering food for the winter.

9 But you, lazybones, how long will you sleep?

    When will you wake up?

10 A little extra sleep, a little more slumber,

    a little folding of the hands to rest—

11 then poverty will pounce on you like a bandit;
    scarcity will attack you like an armed robber.”

(Proverbs 6:6-11, NLT).

See how the Living Bible puts it:

“Take a lesson from the ants, you lazy fellow. Learn from their ways and be wise! 7 For though they have no king to make them work, 8 yet they labor hard all summer, gathering food for the winter. 9 But you—all you do is sleep. When will you wake up? 10 “Let me sleep a little longer!” Sure, just a little more!11 And as you sleep, poverty creeps upon you like a robber and destroys you; want attacks you in full armor.”
Over the next few days, you will receive ten points that will serve as a guide for you to have a productive vacation.
