After watching the movie “Paul, Apostle of Christ” a second time, I picked the words “Unmatched” where Paul was recommending Luke the Physician to his prison prefect.
In his words “Prefect Mauritius! the Greek: Luke, he’s a great physician and his talents are unmatched”. After a while, that phrase came back to me stronger and I just couldn’t help but realize that having the gospel of peace alone is not enough, you also ought to be unmatched in other aspects of life.
For this very reason, applying your diligence [to the divine promises, make every effort] in [exercising] your faith to, develop moral excellence, and in moral excellence, knowledge (insight, understanding).2 Peter 1:5 AMP
To be outstanding, our skills must be unmatched, in our various endeavours, asides being known as a believer, our gifts, talents and skills also ought to make us sought for.
Among peers, the way we show love should be unmatched also. We should be known for charity amongst men.
Our reputation even amongst heathens should be unquestionable. Whenever we are called upon, we ought to be able to deliver without any ambiguity.
And the best time to develop that which will make you unmatched amongst peers is now that you are still in your early years (teens and youth)
Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them;
Ecclesiastes 12:1 KJV
The Word of God admonishes us to work hard, but working hard without working well will only yield poor results, so as you decide to choose a career, sit down and weigh your options well.
To be unmatched is to be excellent in your endeavour. So, seek excellence today, even as you go about your day.
