DILIGENCE SECURES THE FUTURE

Post  Fenny West on Wed 18 Jun 2008, 12:09 am




Diligence secures the future


Occupies you in the present

Keeping you from mischief

Giving you a deserving respect

Pushes slumber and sleep away.



So work hard and smart

Delay your gratification

Work, watch and pray

Pray as if it all depends on God

Work as if it all depends on YOU.





Work Hard!
Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and to work with your hands, just as we told you, so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody.

1 Thessalonians 4:11,12 NIV


The hand of the diligent will rule,
But the lazy man will be put to forced labor

Proverbs 12:24 NKJV

I passed by the field of the sluggard
And by the vineyard of the man lacking sense,

And behold, it was completely overgrown with thistles;
Its surface was covered with nettles,

And its stone wall was broken down.
When I saw, I reflected upon it;
I looked, and received instruction.

"A little sleep, a little slumber,
A little folding of the hands to rest,"
Then your poverty will come as a robber
And your want like an armed man.

Proverbs 24:30-24 NASB
