Seeds Of Destiny

To sit in one place doing nothing is to rust in life.

SCRIPTURE: By much slothfulness the building decayeth; and through idleness of the hands the house droppeth through. Ecclesiastes 10:18.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: To sit in one place doing nothing is to rust in life.

Sometime ago, I told a young man who was waiting for Government contracts, not to only wait for contracts to do but also engage his hands in doing some other things. I told him that as a family man, his wife may not wait until they pay him money for contracts before expecting him to meet the basic needs of the family. I advised him that while waiting for the contracts in millions of Naira, he should also do something in the immediate that can bring him money daily, that is, daily cash inflow. 

The young man put what I told him into practice and came back after sometime and said, “Sir, what you told me the other day is working. Money is coming regularly that I am using to achieve many things with my life”.

You see, to sit in one place doing nothing is to rust in life. Instead of sitting and waiting endlessly, develop a vision to ensure you are not stranded in life. There are many things you can do to avoid being stranded while waiting for a job. There are people who sell water and give offerings and tithes in millions of Naira.

My counsel is, engage your hand in profitable activities; keep living a productive life even while in expectation for that dream job. 

Remember this: To sit in one place doing nothing is to rust in life.


  1. Refuse to sit down in one place doing nothing in expectation of a job.
  2. Look for something legitimate to do with your life no matter how little.

PRAYER: Thank You Lord for Your Word to me today. I ask for the grace not to be idle in life. Open my eyes to see what to do with my life, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
