be diligent in business

Proverbs 22


Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean [men].

It's difficult to be faithful to work hard instead of wasting time, when I'm doing my own business. We need to work for the Lord, believing that He will reward us. Even though we might have a hard time now, as we just keep working for Him with all our strength, it will be worth it.

From: He Keeps Me Singing

By Lu­ther Bridg­ers, 1910
There’s within my heart a melody
Jesus whispers sweet and low,
Fear not, I am with thee, peace, be still,
In all of life’s ebb and flow.

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus,
Sweetest Name I know,
Fills my every longing,
Keeps me singing as I go.
