Proverbs 13:4 (KJV)
The soul of the sluggard desireth and hath nothing: but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat.
Dayo and Greg were students in the same class; they studied and played together as best friends. But at the end of the term, Greg always came first and Dayo came almost last in the class. It was after four years that Dayo met a principal who by the spirit of God counseled him and taught him about personal diligence. His principal told him that until results began to show for his work, he could not say he was truly diligent, because diligence always yields results when attained.
Greg and Dayo were both hardworking but Dayo was not diligent enough to see good results in his studies.
The attitude of Dayo was reading as much as Greg, and never more than Greg. He slept when Greg slept, etc. But when Dayo began doing more, his result came to a tally with Greg’s.
Merriam Webster dictionary defines diligence as “the attention and care legally expected or required of a person (as a party to a contract)”. God has a will for you; your part in seeing His will come to pass is in your diligence. God has given His will and His part is unchangeable.
Proverbs 22:29 (KJV): Seest thou a man diligent in his business? He shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men.
Go into today making up your mind to truly seek diligence. Ask the Lord to help you to be truly diligent from this moment.
