The Lord tells us
Proverbs 10:4 – He becomes poor who works with a slack and idle hand, but the hand of the diligent makes rich.
Proverbs 12:24 – The hand of the diligent will rule, but the slothful will be put to forced labor.
In today’s world, everyone seems to be seeking something for nothing, or they are expecting everyone else to do it for them. That is not what God has intended for us.
You should be the one setting the example for your employee’s, your family, and your friends. Why are you expecting everyone else to do the work, just so you can reap the rewards. Your do diligence is noticed. Your laziness is noticed. One can bring you great rewards, the other will bring you poverty.
It is time to step up and be the person God intended you to be. A leader!!
You punish your children for disobedience, yet your behavior is where they learned it from.
You reprimand your employee’s, yet they have learned the behavior from you.
Take a look at yourself in the mirror and see what others see. What kind of changes need to be made in your life to reflect the actions you want from others.
Do Diligence! The art of practicing what you preach!
