“Hard Work Pays”
Matthew 7:20 (NKJV)
20 Therefore by their fruits you will know them.
God’s Word teaches us the value of hard work. In Paul’s second letter to Thessalonians, Paul warns if any do not work, they should not eat.
2 Thessalonians 3:10 (NKJV)
“For even when we were with you, we commanded you this: If anyone will not work, neither shall he eat.”
God has created a world in which diligence is rewarded, but a sloth is not. So, whatever you do be committed to it and do it with vigor. In my profession I always worked as if my boss was God. So, I was always working for God. He provided my work, and I knew that if I put in as good day’s work that He would be pleased. There is nothing better than to know you have please God. With God behind you then you are always up to whatever task is before you. He has big plans for you when you have a loving heart and willing hands, He will be pleased.
Colossians 3:23 (NKJV)
23 And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men.
