See A Man Diligent In His Work, He Shall Stand Before Kings, He Shall Not Stand Before Mean Men
“Seest thou a man diligent in his business? He shall stand before Kings; he shall not stand before mean men.” (Proverbs 22:29)
An army officer stopped to have his shoes shined by an Indian boy on the street. The boy launched into his task with such enthusiasm and vigour that the man was utterly amazed. He worked diligently until the leather sparkled with a brilliant lustre. The officer asked the boy why he took so much time to polish the shoes; the boy replied
“Last week Jesus came into my heart and now l belong to Him. Every time I shine someone’s shoes, I do the very best I can because I want Him to be pleased with me.”
Diligent people are always willing to work hard and make a very good use of everything their hands find to do, even when it is not always convenient. They work hard not because they want to become famous, rich or admired, but to serve and please God.
They prosper, make profit, enjoy favour, are successful and reap prosperity through hard-work.
Diligence is a vital part of wise living.
Be industrious and try to put care and effort into what you do as this will bring in blessings.
A diligent man will stand before kings.
Chores can be fun if seen as divine opportunities to serve God!
May Our God The Almighty prosper Nigeria and Israel and defend us from all our enemies in Jesus Christ Name, Amen!
