Good Things Cost

Key Verse

“He becometh poor that dealeth with a slack hand: but the hand of the diligent maketh rich.” Proverbs 10:4

Text — Proverbs 10:3-7


Derilla desired a beautiful doll and went to the store to get it. The seller asked her to pay the money for her to have it. Sadly, she could not have the doll she loved because she did not have the money to pay for it. An old nursery rhyme says “If wishes were horses, beggars would ride.” This means good things come at a cost and that success do not come by just wishing for it but through hard work and paying the cost it takes to have it.
God the Father, sets the example when He gave us Jesus Christ, His only begotten Son. Salvation came to us free but cost Jesus Christ His life. God deserves the best from you. Repent and surrender your life to Him if you are living in sin and disobedience. Give God your heart, spend your time serving Him, and love Him more than anything and anyone.
Do you desire good success? Then you need to be disciplined and work hard. Success is not for the lazy.
Make up your mind to do all that you need to do to be the best. God is ready to help you. Are you ready?
