“Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work,” – Titus 3:1
Readiness is a very important characteristic to practice in the life of a Christian worker. Readiness implies fitness for the task. A ready person has planned to adjust for the work. Perhaps preparedness is a good description.
There are many toils which we should be ready to encounter in our days. Having a strong work habit is not enough. We must be differentiating between that which is good or beneficial and that which is wasteful or hurtful.
