“If the ax is dull and its edge unsharpened, more strength is needed but skill will bring success”
– Ecclesiastes 10:10
Know what is changing. Jump into the change!

A famous old African fable told of an agile young man who would make an effort to go to his farm yet not get anything done. The field remained ever bushy and his ground could not be tilled for sowing his seed.
The months wore on, the rains came and went, but he had no harvest.
Not because he didn’t leave home daily to go to his farm but because his farm tools (cutlasses, hoes) were blunt on the edge and he wouldn’t even bother to sharpen them.
It is imperative that we continue to up-skill ourselves; learn, relearn; be aware and involved in the evolutionary process of things.
Keep your mind keenly alert and sharp; develop it. It is the tool you have to transact in such a very mentally-demanding world in which you live.
Know what has changed or is changing in your industry and pay the price to catch up on the trends. Get the required education. Build helpful business and social networks.
Only then will you be relevant and still productive both in and out of season.
LET US PRAY:
Dear God, strengthen me through your spirit in my inner man. Grant unto me a discerning heart to know what is no longer working and continually embrace the more viable option that life affords.
Help me to stay agile, flexible, and very mobile in my skills for life and productivity so I keep learning, relearning, and unlearning.
I receive the grace to live free of traditional and religious mindsets. I am empowered to live focused and effective in every good work to the glory of God.
In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
