Idle Worship
Christians have been warned and instructed by the Lord to remain clear of idol worship. Most understand this command and many follow God's instructions. There is yet another caution found in God's Word. We are instructed to remain free from being idle; also known as being satisfied with doing nothing. Now this is not in reference to enjoying a relaxing day at home or resting as you spend time with family and friends. Rather, this is referring to choosing to sit out on life's responsibilities and opportunities due to fear, indifference or lack of motivation. 

Christians have a great responsibility to live in a way that is pleasing to the Lord and to set an example for others. That includes stepping out in faith and doing what is necessary to care for oneself and their family. It also means taking action to serve the Lord. By taking action you are not sitting idly by, but rather are caring, volunteering, providing encouragement, or simply being available to those that need you. There is so much to do! As you start a New Year, take a moment to consider what you can do to be busy for the Lord and make a difference in your life and the lives of others. 

Wishing you a Blessed New Year!

Besides, they get into the habit of being idle and going about from house to house. And not only do they become idlers, but also busybodies who talk nonsense, saying things they ought not to. 
1 Timothy 5:13
