20 Bible Verses That Explains Importance Of Hard Work
Today we will be dealing with 20 bible verses that explains importance of hard work.
God hates people that are lazy. Even God himself is not lazy , He watches over us all the time which is not a lazy man’s work. To be hard working is to be diligent in all that you do. Many times we have confused money to be the root of evil, but the bible made us understand that money isn’t the root of evil but the love of money. Someone who loves money need to get up to work or get a job that will pay him so he can satisfy his needs if not he will start to go against God’s will and will find himself doing what God hates.
Money doesn’t grow on trees neither can it be picked on the floor. We need to work to get paid. When we ask God to bless us , there must be something we are doing that God will Increase it so we can benefit from it. The bible says whatsoever your hands find doing, do it well. After all what’s worth doing at all is worth doing well.
The bible says see a man that is diligent in his work, he will work with kings and queens, dine with people of higher status and will be known world wide as as blessed one . That’s how important God sees hard work to be. When we’re given a task to do let’s do it well so that when it’s time to be rewarded we will be rewarded greatly for It and be more blessed. There’s no food for lazy man.
