TODAY’S LESSON:
A: MEMORY VERSE: “Proverbs 6.6 – Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise.” – Proverbs 6:6
B: BIBLE TEXT: 1 Kings 19:15-21
15 – And the LORD said unto him, Go, return on thy way to the wilderness of Damascus: and when thou comest, anoint Hazael to be king over Syria:
16 – And Jehu the son of Nimshi shalt thou anoint to be king over Israel: and Elisha the son of Shaphat of Abelmeholah shalt thou anoint to be prophet in thy room.
17 – And it shall come to pass, that him that escapeth the sword of Hazael shall Jehu slay: and him that escapeth from the sword of Jehu shall Elisha slay.
18 – Yet I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him.
19 – So he departed thence, and found Elisha the son of Shaphat, who was plowing with twelve yoke of oxen before him, and he with the twelfth: and Elijah passed by him, and cast his mantle upon him.
20 – And he left the oxen, and ran after Elijah, and said, Let me, I pray thee, kiss my father and my mother, and then I will follow thee. And he said unto him, Go back again: for what have I done to thee?
21 – And he returned back from him, and took a yoke of oxen, and slew them, and boiled their flesh with the instruments of the oxen, and gave unto the people, and they did eat. Then he arose, and went after Elijah, and ministered unto him.
C: LESSON INTRODUCTION: Our God is not lazy. The bible records that He created the whole world in six days then rested in just one day. And this same God created us in His image, so we must resemble Him by being hard working. For God to use anybody, such a fellow must have been a very committed worker, it does not matter the level of responsibility you are given or how little or menial it is. What matters is how you apply yourself to it. The narrative from our today’s text is a food for thought.

LESSON OUTLINES: There are two outlines:
A: PROPHET ELISHA AS A CASE STUDY:
God told Prophet Elijah to ordain Elisha in his (Elijah) stead, because Elijah will soon be taken away. And this Elisha was a farmer, – not a lazy farmer. Elijah met him (Elisha) on his farm working.
Some lessons to learn:
i. Farming was Elisha’s occupation.
ii. He had employees under him.
iii. He was always with his employees in the farm.
Remember the bible says “whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might…” – Ecclesiastes 9:10a.
Also the Holy Spirit admonishes us in 2 Thessalonians 3:10 that anybody who would not work, neither should he eat.
B: OTHER EXAMPLES OF MEN WHOM GOD USED MIGHTILY FOR THEIR GENERATION ARE:
a- David. – 1 Samuel 16:11-12
b- Joseph – Genesis 40:1-4; 41:38-40
c- Jephthah – Judges 11:1-3
d- Moses – Exodus 3:1-10
e- Joshua – Exodus 17:9-13
f- Paul – Acts 8:1-4; 9:1-9; 15
ACTIVITY: Why do you think God always uses hard working men and women for His kingdom assignment?
SUMMARY: Be hard working.
