Day 17 – Hand of diligence bear rule


Work hard, and you will be a leader; be lazy, and you will end up a slave. (CEV)

The slothful man does catch his game or roast it once he kills it, but the diligent man gets precious possessions. (Amp) Proverbs 12: 24 & 27

 If we can imbibe what the Bible teaches regarding a life style of diligence each family will prosper, the community will prosper and the nation will be built up.

You will find that the heaven is so wide; the birds don’t collide! Many times when you find a man that complains that he is not in leadership, it could be because he has misused the opportunities he once had. But since you are still alive today, there is still another opportunity for you to build a future for yourself and fulfil your destiny. One way to do that is to be diligent in what you do.  A man that is diligent, it does not matter what he does, will rise to the top.

The Bible says ‘he will stand before kings, not before mean men’. Consider verse 27 again, imagine a slothful man; he goes to hunting but is too lazy to roast what he brought home! He seem to make some attempts, but he has not the consistency and determination to see it through! Are you like that, with the many opportunities at your disposal? Why would you be so lazy and loose the opportunities to do great things for yourself, your family and the community? Wake up! The substance of a diligent man is precious. May God bless you as you renew your commitment to walking in diligence today.
