25 Bible Verses About Success and Hard work
Today we will be dealing with 25 bible verses about success and hard work. Success and hard work are two intertwined words. Hard work birth Success. The scripture lays more emphasis on hard work in the book of Proverbs 22:29 Do you see a man who excels in his work? He will stand before kings; He will not stand before unknown men. The scripture admonished that when a man is diligent in his work, he will stand before kings and not mere men. The concept of standing in front of Kings means great success. That means hard work translates into success, as such, whoever doesn’t work can’t be successful.
Nevertheless, not all hard work leads to success. There are so many believers working tirelessly but have little or nothing to show for it. This could be mean they are only using strength and not working smart or they are being hindered by powers and forces. That’s why the scripture said it is not of him that willeth and runneth but of God that showeth mercy. To know how to work hard and work smart for success to come, the Bible offers countless verses that teach on hard work and success. We have compiled a list of 25 bible verses about success and hard work.
