Diligent Hands Bestow Dividends
Proverbs 10:4 (KJB) He becometh poor that dealeth with a slack hand: but the hand of the diligent maketh rich.
Two kinds of people are described in this scripture verse. One man is lazy, while the other is a diligent worker.
It is easy to apply this to a man or woman at work in this world. One who works hard for his employer and the other who repeatedly slacks off and does not engage in doing his assigned work. While this application is certainly true and can be found in this world, there is another application of this truth that affects every man, woman, and child on this earth in a wide spiritual net.
Ponder upon a spiritual application which distinguishes a godly person who produces much spiritual fruit up against a spiritually lazy worker who manages to do only a little work of spiritual value for his eternal gain in the kingdom of God.
The child of God who liberally applies God’s truth to his or her life and bears much spiritual fruit for bringing God honor and glory will certainly be found spiritually plump in the eternal realm. While the child of God who participates in serving God just enough to through this world will lack spiritual profit and be found spiritually thin in the eternal realm.
