Sharpen the Ax

If the ax is dull and its edge unsharpened, more strength is needed, but skill will bring success. Ecclesiastes 10:10 (NIV)

Life can be difficult. At times it requires hard work. There may be areas in which spending time to learn a new skill can make things easier. We have ways we can learn the skills needed to make life a little easier and bring success. We can read books on the topic. We can find a person who has been through the situation before and ask for their help. We can look for the answer God provides in the Bible.

God, thank you for reminding me that learning new skills brings success. Show me the areas I need to grow in and what I can do to grow in those areas. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
