Help us, Lord, not to be content with superficial work which does not lead to changed lives.

Proverbs 25:1-28

‘The Lord will reward you’ (Proverbs 25:22). Lord, the work, done by Your servants, is tested by fire: ‘the fire will test what sort of work each one has done’. There is work of real ‘quality’ – ‘gold, silver, precious stones’.  There is work which has no real value – ‘wood, hay, straw’. Lord, You want us to think about the work we do in Your Name. We are to ‘remove the dross from the silver’ (Proverbs 25:4). Help us not to be content with superficial work which does not lead to changed lives. Our words are to be ‘apples of gold in a setting of silver’. They are to be words of wisdom, words which are ‘better than fine gold’, words which ‘surpass choice silver’ (Proverbs 25:11; Proverbs  8:19). Help us to bring Your Word – ‘good news’ – and Your Spirit -‘rivers of living water’ – to our hearers (Proverbs 25:25; 1 Peter 1:12,23-25; John 7:37-39).
