Today’s reading Lamentations 1-5

Lamentations 3:27 It is good for a man that he bear the yoke in his youth.

It is good for a young person to have to pay the price. If everything comes to easily it will cause laziness and an attitude of expecting people to do things for them. Sometimes being the smartest, most talented is a hard yoke to bear.

If you are having to work hard to get prepared for the ministry that God has given you then realize that you are blessed and favored. If you have been blessed by parents and God with great talents and abilities then make sure you discipline yourself to work otherwise the curse will soon set in.

This curse will affect you for life! You do not want to allow what was meant to be a blessing to become a curse!
