Prov 12:24 – The hand of the diligent shall bear rule: but the slothful shall be under tribute.
Lets begin by defining the term ” spectator”. According to the Oxford dictionary, a spectator is a person who watches at a show, game or other event. The synonyms listed include: onlooker, watcher, observer, fly on the wall ( I find this last one quite funny!)
Sadly this is the position many have taken in life. They never want to pay the price to develop themselves in order to make a positive contribution in the world. Some who are willing to pay the price, have allowed circumstances or the opinions of others, stop them.
Are you not a spectator when you spend hours watching others on social media and television? Are you not a spectator when you fail to work on your dreams but choose to remain in a job you hate? Are you not a spectator when you spend your time and energy keeping up with celebrities and sports stars and never develop your own talents? Need I remind you, that only actual players/ actors win the trophies and awards.
Let this get you to start or keep working on your dreams. We all have amazing potentials given to us by God to make a difference in the world. Please don’t die without showing the world what you have in you.
This can only happen when you vote yourself off the spectators stand and begin to actively play in the game of life.
God bless you richly.
