(Proverbs 13:4) NIV Lazy people want much but get little, but those who work hard will prosper. NLT INTRO: When I discovered that the theme for this week’s message was "The ...read more

    based on 7 ratings
     | 6,105 views

    The words diligence and industry do not carry as positive a connotation in our society as they once did. But the Bible exalts those that work over the "leisure-holics," and those who work with diligence over those who work with negligence.
