have diligent thoughts

Proverbs 21


The thoughts of the diligent [tend] only to plenteousness; but of every one [that is] hasty only to want.

Diligence makes a difference in our thoughts, so diligent people have different thoughts. Our thoughts make a difference between having plenty of things or lacking things.

It's interesting that diligence is contrasted to hastiness. I never thought of that before. I thought part of being diligent was just doing things really quickly. However, we shouldn't be hasty.

From: Precious Name

By Ly­dia Bax­ter, 1870 and William Doane in 1871
Take the Name of Jesus with you,
Child of sorrow and of woe,
It will joy and comfort give you;
Take it then, where’er you go.

Precious Name, O how sweet!
Hope of earth and joy of Heav’n.
Precious Name, O how sweet!
Hope of earth and joy of Heav’n.
