Be Diligent And Not Become Lazy

Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks, and look well to thy herds.” (Proverbs 27 v 23)

The Bible makes it clear that diligence (being willing to work hard and do one’s best at any given task)is a vital part of wise living. We work hard not to become rich, famous or admired (although those may be the result), but to serve God to the best of our ability with HIS LOVE and SPIRIT flowing and working through us!

Because life is short and our journey through subject to continual changing circumstances, we should be all the more diligent in what we do with our life. Followers of Jesus Christ should act with foresight. We need to become responsible stewards, like a farmer with his lands and herds. Thinking ahead is a duty, not an option, for God’s people!
