Be diligent to know the state of your flocks, and attend to your herds; for riches are not forever, nor does a crown endure to all generations. Proverbs 27:23-24

Shepherds need to be experts in the way their animals are bred, sheltered, fed, jugged (separated with their mother for a period after birth), mixed, weaned, dewormed, and even how they play, if the shepherds want to make sure their animals thrive.

Just as shepherds need to be diligent about the state of their flocks, the scriptures call you to know the ins and outs of your occupation. You ought to know all of your industry terms and their nuances. As you grow and immerse yourself in your occupation, you should develop knowledge about what will work and what won’t. This will make you a valuable asset to your employer, as well as give you some financial stability.

In so doing, you’ll set yourself apart from other employees who are simply punching a clock to earn a living. A few of them might also follow your example of diligence. Your boss will certainly take note, at least. But most importantly, you’ll be fulfilling your calling as set forth in Colossians 3:23-24: “And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ.”
