Proverbs 10:4 “He becometh poor that dealeth [with] a slack hand: but the hand of the diligent maketh rich.”

Proverbs 10:4 “Being lazy will make you poor, but hard work will make you rich.” (GNB)

Proverbs 21:25 “The desire of the slothful killeth him; for his hands refuse to labour.”

Laziness is another habit that impoverishes a man. It is a major trait among the poor. Many people dream and imagine great stuff but only the ones that bend over backwards to work see the fulfilment of their dreams.

God Himself is a “hard-worker”. He sets a precedence for us in the Bible. In Genesis chapter one, we read that “God said…” and “God saw…” and many people have taken it that God didn’t do anything serious in creation, He only spoke and that’s all, well, let me show you the revelation of Job:

Job 38:4 “Where were you when I created the earth? Tell me, since you know so much!”

Job 38:5 “Who decided on its size? Certainly you’ll know that! Who came up with the blueprints and measurements?”

Job 38:6 “How was its foundation poured, and who set the cornerstone,”(MSG)

Friend, the earth didn’t just appear, God drew out the blueprint, did the measurement then conducted a foundation laying ceremony! He then went ahead to put it together brick by brick. It was a serious construction work that took place.

God dreamt of the earth and actually rolled up His sleeves and got to work, real hardwork!

God set example of work for us to follow. A man that will not work hard will always end up being poor. I read that many Billionaires and other rich and famous folks work for between eighteen and twenty hours a day. The American President Donald Trump says he sleeps for just about three to four hours daily.

You might shout and say that’s not enough, well, that’s why you’re not that wealthy. Every wealthy man knows how to burn the midnight oil. Hear this:

Proverbs 6: 10 “Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep”
