Laziness Devotional: Tuesday, March 15

Begin with prayer.

Read Romans 12:11-12: Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord.  Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.

The idea behind the verse is that when a person initially comes to Christ they are excited to serve and grow in Him, but as time goes by that fervency dwindles, how have you seen this in your own life?  Has there been anything in particular (sin, friends, etc.) that has caused you to lack spiritual fervor?

The Lord desires us to serve Him with our best, in what ways are you doing that now?  In what ways do you need to be more spiritually productive?  

Close in prayer asking God to help you be more spiritually productive.
