Thought of the Day !!

When Joshua was old and well advanced in years, the LORD said to him, "You are very old, and there are still very large areas of land to be taken over."
                                                                          Joshua 13:1 (NIV)

Joshua had already lived in the Wilderness, brought the Israelites to the Promised Land, taken the city of Jericho and defeated many enemies.  He was well passed normal retirement age.  But God had more for him to do.

In our lives many will look forward to the day that they retire.  Celebrations will be had.  Plans will be made for life after work.  And there's nothing wrong with this.  But remember that we never retire from doing ministry.  God will use those who are willing until the last remaining days of their lives.  Our ministries will change from time to time.  We might not be physically able to do what we did when we were younger.  But we can always be a part of God's work in some way. 


So don't ever plan a retirement party from doing ministry, for the Lord still has something important for you to do.

In the love of Christ,
