Street Sweepin’ Machine

Colossians 3:23- Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. (New Living Translation)

Work, faith, love, if we operate efficiently in these three categories we shall overcome any listless situation. Therefore, “If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets so well that the hosts of heaven say, ‘Here lived a great street sweeper who did a job well”(MLK). Hence, “Don’t let the enemy cause you to lose motivation, operate as if nothing is wrong and continue along the path God set you on” (Curtis).

Moreover, a million dollar dream means nothing, if you do not have a minimum wage work ethic. Thus the reason why our mindsets must prepare us each day to depend on God, while placing our fears in the rearview mirror. A mindset tuned to channel God’s love through the airwaves so we can remain tranquil within any circumstance. This mindset is uniquely different, for its origin is derived from the Holy Spirit the Lord shared with us when He died for our sins. Amen
