Proverbs 14:23

All hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty. Proverbs 14:23 NIV https://bible.com/bible/111/pro.14.23.NIV

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, wish you a great day in the Lord!

It is not simply quoted that success is the result of intense effort and diligence, in one word – hard work. But the fact is, it is a life lesson for all. The Book of books, the Holy Bible speaks of the diligence, tirelessness, perseverance all throughout. As the above verse says, it brings profit to the doer. But remember, working tirelessly for a wrong cause does not do any good. Any kind of untiring and diligent work would not be fruitful, if it is found wicked in the sight of God. Certainly, those who work for a honest and righteous cause shall have the favour of the Lord. Moreover, the Bible says that whatever we do, shall be done with all of our heart as if working for the Lord.

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters,

Colossians 3:23 NIV

Truly, the above verse is very helpful for us. We should apply it in our lives and do every job or task as if we are doing it for the Lord. Even more, success would not take much time to knock our doors.

As the second part of the above subject verse says, mere talking rather than doing, leads to poverty. This is absolutely true; for a lazy person, it is extremely difficult to be fruitful. According to the below verse, laziness leads to forced labour, but the diligent shall always have upper hand.

Diligent hands will rule, but laziness ends in forced labor.

Proverbs 12:24 NIV

Therefore beloved, let us seek the Lord to be with us in every work and also do everything for His glory sake. Amen.
