Do you find that one result of hard work is more opportunities for hard work? This is something to beware of if your goal in life is to minimize effort. But that is not a plan for an abundant life.
Your salvation is a free gift from me that you could not earn by your own works. Do not let this foundational truth prevent you from experiencing the joy of serving me. There are other results of hard work. You gain the satisfaction of honest accomplishment in the service of your fellow man and of me. Even if you become tired from the effort you have my promise that I will renew your strength if you wait on me.
