“The hand of the diligent shall bear rule: but the slothful shall be under tribute” (Proverbs 12:24).Text — Proverbs 24:30-34
According to Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, the heights great men attain are not a sudden flight, but through toiling upwards in the night while their companions are sleeping. Little wonder Solomon wrote, ” Seest thou a man diligent in his business, he shall stand before kings, he shall not stand before mean men” (Proverbs 22:28). The result of laziness is abject poverty, unfulfilled dreams, low moral integrity, mental stagnation, regret and sorrow. Just as laziness brings pains, diligence on the other hand brings gains. Many have sold themselves to the devil to be used as internet fraudsters because of laziness and quest for quick wealth.
A diligent youth puts his best into anything he or she does, paying attention to details with the sole purpose of attaining excellence. Diligence promotes to leadership among peers, just as it was with Daniel, David, Deborah, Esther, etc. Faithfulness and diligence in spiritual, academic, vocational, and other relevant matters are required in every given task. Don’t despise the responsibilities given to you irrespective of how little they might seem, and the Lord will exalt you in due season.
Diligence promotes to leadership
Be diligent, the results are marvelous.
