Do not work for food that spoils, but for the food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. For on him God the Father has placed his seal of approval. (John 6:27)
When we work, we work for compensation as wages being paid for labor. The hard work and effort put forth into what we count on as earnest work, pays off on numerous accounts. There is much to be said when we labor but if we work less, there is less compensation. If our schedule is part-time then our compensation is equivalent to our time and labor. If its full-time then there is more to gain. The real situation here is that you can do more with more and less with less. However, the vital point being made is, what are we really laboring for? Are we investing in temporal gains or permanent gains? Does it completely provide all the essential nutrients for the sake our soul which is vital in today’s society? Do we put forth the time and effort to work as hard as we do for the sake of the Kingdom as we do in our daily lives? There is an eternal blessing that is promised and awaits us. It has been sealed and delivered by Christ through the Father. It is to our advantage to grasp and take every opportunity to labor for that which is eternal. The first step begins with discarding the spoiled food for the spiritually organic food. It is very vital and necessary so that we prosper in all things.
