Gains Of Diligence

Diligence means giving the required attention and care for excellence and perfection in fulfilling one’s responsibilities. A diligent person puts his best into what he or she does, paying attention to details with the sole purpose of attaining perfection. Proverbs 22:29 says, “If you’re diligent, you’ll stand before kings and not ordinary men,” that’s promotion. That means being diligent will bring you into places of influence and honour.

The Bible shows us David as an example of a diligent young man. The responsibility to tend sheep, given to him by his father, seemed menial in comparison with those of his brothers, who were in the army. But David faithfully and diligently took care of the sheep, so much so that when he had to run other errands, the Bible specifically records that he was careful enough to leave the sheep in the care of a keeper. (1 Samuel 17:20)

The diligent never lacks, “He becometh poor that dealeth with a slack hand, but the hand of the diligent maketh rich.” (Proverbs 10:4) God will bless whatever you do and give you the advantage if you’re faithful and diligent. As a politician, civil servant, businessperson, professional or a student, be diligent in what your hands findeth to do and you’ll be a force to be reckoned with.

Look unto Jesus

There is always the tendency for us to get distracted in life. Our eyes will go off course when we are distracted and we lose focus. The Christian life is a walk with Jesus as our focus but the cares of this life and deceitfulness of riches makes us take our eyes off Jesus. We
