May Virtue: Diligence

Doing your best and working hard until you're finished
 
Imagine being an air traffic controller at a large international airport during the Christmas season...and simply walking away from your monitor an hour early because it's been a long day and you're tired. Or maybe you're a neurosurgeon about to remove a dangerous tumor from someone's spinal cord, and you quit almost at the end because you'v got other things you'd rather do right now. Problems with this behavior? Definitely. 

To practice the virtue of diligence means not only to finish something that we have begun but also to pay attention to what we're doing so that it is done well. The examples used here may be a little extreme, but the virtue of diligence remains the same, whether the task involves finishing surgery or finishing a test. Fidelity to small, everyday tasks perpares us to handle larger responsibilities well. By doing all of our work well, no matter how insignificant it may seem, we are fulfilling God's will for our lives and helping to build up His kingdom. Each time we recite the Morning Offering we give all our work as a gift to God. Let's give Him our best!
