“Resting on one’s laurels” was once a positive term. Ancient victories in the Greek Games, led to the adoration of competitors and their homeland citizens.
Just a thought, this term is no longer considered optimistic. The opposite is true today and unfortunately, you do not have to accomplish anything before taking on this designation. In the fourth of Ephesians, we learn to work hard by our own hands for self and others. Those in the third of Second Thessalonians were taught to be industrious until the Lord calls us home. We are given the example of the ant, in the sixth of Proverbs, showing how lazy manners will condemn. Resting on laurels, in previous days, honored the triumph. The only victory today lies in diligence…word, thought and deed. Think about it.
Have the day you are meant to have in Christ alone,
