Keeping Ourselves Occupied

A good reminder in our word to keep busy, don’t just do chores in the morning and then put our feet up in the afternoon and evening:

Ecc 11:6  Plant your seed in the morning and keep busy all afternoon, for you don’t know if profit will come from one activity or another—or maybe both.

Sometimes God presents opportunities to us outside of the workplace, be it a friendship, a chance to spread God’s Word, or some other avenue of profit, so it’s best to keep ourselves occupied and not loaf, even though after working 8 hours, that’s what we tend to want to do.  i.e. — Clock out, go home, sit on the couch…however today’s verse says stay busy, even in the evenings, because that’s when opportunity might arise, not just in the workplace between 9 and 5.
