day no. 13,386: in the red

Luke 17:10

When ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants.
I was reading Pilgrim's Progress the other night and Bunyan made use of this verse highlighting the unprofitability of our doing.
It reminded me of another verse.

John 6:63

It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing.
There is no gain to be accounted for in our efforts alone.
If God does not do something, anything, no profit will be produced.
