Just keep quiet and play the game
Colossians 3:23” Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men, 24 knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance. It is the Lord Christ whom you serve.
I tell you when I read the remarks of Sourav Ganguly in an article in the sports column captioned “Just keep quiet and play the game”, I felt those are apt comments for vain chatterboxes! Ace comment! Stop talking and keep moving! Let me tell you, this jet-speed world seldom wants to hear your sob story, they have their own to think of! Let this sink deep into your heart and now get back to work.
When I ask a particular woman if the job was done, she would now narrate her pathetic story of misfortune from the time she missed her bus in the morning, her lost purse, the quarrels at home, her stomach ache, burnt dosas in the morning and what not, all this introduction is given to tell that she got the work accomplished DESPITE all these hurdles. Ah! The flavor of victory is lost in the marathon narration of the tale, just say ‘YES THE JOB IS DONE, GOD KNOWS YOUR EFFORTS!’ In due course, the price that you paid for the work to be done will reach your boss or whoever you want to impress. God would do that for you! Are you listening? The husband gets bugged when the wife keeps giving marathon details of every work that she does from morning to evening, Just keep quiet and play the game, you would definitely get your rewards from heaven.
From the time of writing the draft for any upcoming sermon, to collecting various illustrations, to collecting necessary presentation pics, examples, prayers, fasting and what not cannot be explained on the pulpit, GOD KNOWS AND HE WOULD REWARD.
Hope I helped someone out there today!
Just keep quiet and play the game! Cheers!
