“Whatever your hands find to do, do it with all your might.” –Ecclesiastes 9:10
Read: Ecclesiastes 9
It’s interesting that of the blessings, trophies and awards I’ve been humbled to receive throughout my life, one stands out as my most cherished. When I was a kid, my coaches gave me the “Hustle” award. Ironically, it was for a sport that I wasn’t particularly great at. Try and imagine running the 100 meter hurdles wearing swim fins. Got the visual? That’s me playing basketball. And even that might be gracious. But while I didn’t run the offense very well, or lead the team in rebounds, and although I was never the game’s high scorer, I was never out-hustled. For whatever reason — whether it be practice or a game — something inside my heart just would not let me be out-worked.
