Increase Through Labour

Key Verse

 “Wealth gotten by vanity shall be diminished: but he that gathereth by labour shall increase”(Proverbs 13:11).

Text — Proverbs 13:11-13


Thomas Edison invented about 1093 things before he died at 87years in 1831. His most popular invention is the electric bulb filament that turned the world out of physical darkness. Edison’s life was not without losses and failures. When fire gutted much of his lifetime valuables he said, “There is great value in disaster. All our mistakes are burnt up. Thank God we can start anew.” By faith he kept on and in three weeks after that disaster he invented the phonograph, a sound recorder. He trusted in God’s ability to help him overcome in all situations.

The Bible is replete with God’s promises for our progress and prosperity. He gives wealth, by giving us wisdom to labour and to enjoy its fruit. He demands that we employ righteous work principles to get gain. He will not reward laziness. He does not delight to give longevity, peace and power to anyone to enjoy wealth gotten through sinful conduct such as, robbery, internet fraud, prostitution, occultism and cheating. The get-rich-quick syndrome is a path full of afflictions, sicknesses and painful regrets. Pray for all workers today.

 Labour to possess by right.

 Oh God, prosper the works of my hand in Jesus’ name.
