Nobody Changed The World Working 40 Hours Weekly

You can either despise or admire Elon Musk, but ignoring him in 2023 will be difficult. When he claims that “nobody changed the world working 40 hours a week.” You can consider it and come to the conclusion, “yeah, that makes sense.” There are no major biblical or historical figures who have had such an impact who are not also described as workaholics. Nobody builds multigenerational wealth while working 40 hours per week. If you are serious about your mission and want to fulfill your mandate, a “normal working hours” approach to your work will not suffice.

You should read, think about, and reflect on the gospels. You will notice the work ethic, discipline, and no-nonsense approach that our Lord Jesus demonstrated during his earthly ministry. George Whitefield, the great revivalist once wrote, “Fear not your weak body; we are immortal till our work is done. Christ’s laborers must live by miracle; if not, I must not live at all; for God only knows what I daily endure. My continual vomitings almost kill me, and yet the pulpit is my cure, so that my friends begin to pity me less, and to leave off that ungrateful caution, ‘Spare thyself!'”

Nobody in business, ministry, or government is making the kind of impact you envision and doing “whatever they can, whenever they can.” Hebrews 6:12 warns us not to be lazy, but to seek to imitate those who have grasped divine promises. In 1 Timothy 4:15, the Apostle Paul exhorts his son in the faith to devote himself completely to the task at hand. You will not be able to accomplish anything if you continue to devote a few hours each week to your core spiritual mission. You must go all in.
