And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ. Colossians 3:23-24 NKJV

Did you know diligence is a key to obtaining the blessings of God? To be diligent means to approach what you are doing with eagerness, earnestness, and care.

Diligence is a matter of the heart, and a diligent heart always produces good: “In the morning sow your seed, and in the evening do not withhold your hand; for you do not know which will prosper, either this or that, or whether both alike will be good” (Ecclesiastes 11:6 NKJV).

Let’s look at what God’s Word has to say about diligence:

The hand of the diligent will rule, but the lazy man will be put to forced labor” (Proverbs 12:24 NKJV).     “The soul of a lazy man desires, and has noting; but the soul of the diligent shall be made rich”     (Proverbs 13:4 NKJV).

The plans of the diligent lead surely to plenty, but those of everyone who is hasty, surely to poverty” (Proverbs 21:5).

Diligence is a prerequisite to seeing your victory.

Diligent people always make a steady, consistent effort to accomplish their goals.

Diligent people never give up.

Confession: I decide today to always make a steady, consistent effort to accomplish my God-given goals and to never give up. Whatever I do today, I will do it diligently and joyfully as unto the Lord.
