“An angry man stirreth up strife, and a furious man aboundeth in transgression.”
Some people say that luck comes to play when opportunity meets diligent preparation. Diligence has propelled nobodies into people of repute. As our reference text puts it, the diligent are sought by the affluent and important people in society. Their services are demanded by the crème de la crème of society. When a man becomes very diligent in his dealings, he is loved and appreciated by everybody around him. He is to them, a breath of fresh air. Automatically, an atmosphere of favour is created all around him.
Diligence creates a new destiny for anyone. And as such, its rewards are not a special reserve for any particular race or people. David was diligent with the harp. Thus, was granted access into King Saul’s palace. Also, Daniel’s diligence led to his promotion in Babylon. In Proverbs 31, the ideal wife is described as a diligent lady whose name is mentioned distances away from her home, even rubbing off on her husband along the way. The diligent soul will eat the fat of the land, hence he receives every good thing.
Christians, undoubtedly are joint heirs with Christ and descendants of Abraham. They are entitled to all the blessings mentioned in the Bible. But consider what the repercussions will be if an heir without self-control, maturity and the necessary ingredients for preservation and growth of wealth is given an inheritance. Seek to be diligent as a Christian and your profiting will be seen by all.
PRAYER POINT: Lord according to your Word, the hand of the diligent shall bear the rule. I am diligent today in my workplace and in every endeavour and assignment I undertake.
