“Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men” (Proverbs 22:29).Text — Proverbs 22:26-29
At age 17, Joni Eareckson Tada, after an accident, lost the usefulness of her arms and legs. After the incident, she learnt new skills and was determined to help others who had similar challenges. Besides, for many months, her condition made her learn how to paint with a brush between her teeth. She started producing paintings not made with hands. Yet, the remarkably high quality of the paintings attracted patronage from a lot of people. Aside from painting, she also became a broadcaster, succeeded in visiting 47 countries, wrote over 50 books and featured in several magazines as a regular columnist.
With diligence despite obstacles, Joni, in 2017, celebrated 35 years of broadcasting and 50 years of life in her wheelchair. A case of what God can do when you diligently do your part and trust in Him! Joni’s was a case of physical challenge but turned to great advantage because she looked beyond her negative condition, to see the possibilities that lay ahead. Do you have a challenge? With faith and good mental attitude, the top can be yours.
The top can be yours
Resolve to diligently do every activity.
