TOPIC: Key Thoughts On Diligence
SCRIPTURE: Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men. Proverbs 22:29
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Diligence is the way to prominence, eminence and excellence.
Previously, we established that diligence is a requirement for excellence and distinction. Diligence is the pathway to excellence and distinction.
Now, we shall look at key thoughts on diligence:
1. Diligence is the high way to eminence, prominence and excellence (Proverbs 22:29).
Diligence is the way to prominence, eminence and excellence. That is why Proverbs 22:29 says: Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men.
The diligent are eminent, prominent and excellent in life.
2. Great differences are made out of little details.
Great differences are made out of little details. Human beings are the same in many ways but different in details; and the attention we pay to the details of life determines the difference that becomes of our lives. Great differences are made out of little details, and that is what is called diligence.
When the queen of Sheba visited King Solomon, what blew her mind was attention to the little details she saw in the palace (1 Kings 10:4-5).
You know, it is little hinges that swing big doors. And one can fail an examination when attention is not paid to little details. Also, one can pass an examination when attention is paid to little details.
Beloved, my counsel is, make up your mind to be diligent so you can be eminent, prominent and excellent. Pay attention to little details so you can arrive at excellence.
REMEMBER THIS: Diligence is the way to prominence, eminence and excellence.
1. Make up your mind to be diligent in all that you do.
2. Pay attention to little details.
PRAYER: O Lord, I ask for the grace to be diligent in all that I do so I can end up being eminent. Help me to pay attention to little details, Lord in Jesus’ Name.
