Joel Osteen on Living Skillfully
In Joel Osteen's Hope For Today Bible, there is an excellent comment about Proverbs 22:29 that I thought was important to share.
Do you see any truly competent workers? They will serve kings rather than working for ordinary people. Proverbs 22:29
Oftentimes, it's easy to get stuck in a rut in life, doing the same thing the same way. But if we are going to live at our best, we should constantly be growing and sharpening our skills. We should strive to learn and grow every single day because when you stop learning, you stop growing, and when you stop growing, you stop living.
What are you doing to stretch yourself? What are you doing to improve your skills? Don't get trapped into thinking that "good enough" is good enough. You are created for more than just average. Pursue what you love and keep developing that area of your life. Today is a new day, and there are new heights for you to climb.
Make sure to purchase Joel's newest book Every Day A Friday
The title comes from research that shows people are happiest on Fridays. Pastor Osteen writes how we can generate this level of contentment and joy every day of the week.
Known as a man who maintains a constant positive outlook in spite of circumstances, Osteen has described this message as a core theme of his ministry. Combining his personal experiences with scriptural insights and principles for true happiness, he shows readers how every day can hold the same promise and opportunities for pure joy that they experience at five o'clock on Friday.
