Labor That Works Miracles

One of my favorite motivational teachers is Jim Rohn,
He is no longer with us, but his message lives on.

Here is a teaching from him that resonates with me.
Hopefully, you'll get some encouragement from it too.  

It's called, Labor That Works Miracles

Two thousand years ago on April 15, one of Jesus' disciples
came to him and said it was time to pay taxes (that's how I
know it was around April 15), but they had no money. In
response to his disciple's statement, Jesus said "no problem."
Now why could he say "no problem"? Well, word had it that
Jesus was a miracle worker. If you hand a problem to a miracle
worker, what they are inclined to say is "no problem." You've got
to hang out with people like that.

I belong to a small group and we do business around the world.
These guys are all miracle workers. What an incredible group.
If you hand any of them a problem, guess what they say,
"no problem." How many books will they read to solve a problem?
As many as it takes. If they need to consult, how much consulting
will they do? As much as it takes. How early will they get up? As early
as it takes. "No problem"... you got to hang out with people like that.
You cannot believe the thrill of being associated with miracle workers,
people who will do whatever it takes to get the job done and perform
miracles.
   
When asked about paying the taxes, Jesus said it was "no problem.”
In fact, he said it was going to be easy. He told the disciple to just go
fishing. Now it couldn't have been any easier than that, especially for
this disciple whose name was Peter, because Peter was a fisherman.
Now, if you can fish and you should fish and you don't fish, then that
is why you do not get a miracle. But Jesus told his disciple to go fishing
and the first fish that he caught to look in its mouth. Peter, who was 
used to strange things happening, agreed. Well, the first fish Peter
catches, he looks in its mouth and finds coins. Peter then adds up the
coins and they are exactly enough to pay his and Jesus' taxes.

"Wow!" you might say. "That is a miracle!" Here is why we call it a miracle.

How about this miracle? God says if you plant the seed, I will make the
tree. Wow, you can't have a better arrangement than that. First, it
gives God the tough end of the deal. What if you had to make a tree?
That would keep you up late at night, trying to figure out how to make
a tree. God says, "No, leave the miracle part to me. I've got the seed,
the soil, the sunshine, the rain and the seasons. I'm God and all this
miracles stuff is easy for me. I have reserved something very special
for you and that is to plant the seed."

I have found in life that if you want a miracle you first need to do
whatever it is you can do. If that's to plant, then plant; if it is to read,
then read; if it is to change, then change; if it is to study, then study;
if it is to work, then work; whatever you have to do. And then you will
be well on your way to doing the labor that works miracles.
