Thomas Edision's lab; how quaint! Yet, at one time it was "state of the art" and we all know that he contributed a great deal to our society. For most people this picture may seem strange, but not for me. I worked over 25 years in chemical labs and some were not much more advanced than this!! So, when I look at this picture, I think "WORK". Yuk!!! But even though I am headed towards retirement soon, I will always have to "work". Read on to see what I mean.
Philippians 2:12 (WEB)
12) So then, my beloved, even as you have always obeyed, not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.
You have to work at your life; it doesn't just happen. Others may influence you, but your own heart drives your actions. Each of us is different; we have different levels of physical and mental capabilities, varying social skills and habits. In short, we are unique! Since we will be known by what we do, let your "work" in life always have a spiritual focus and you will reinvent yourself on a daily basis. You may not be a Thomas Edision, but your life is what you make of it, so get to work!!!
