You know, I never understood people who always expect to get things without actually working hard to get it.
Have you ever met people who are always like, “I will own my business someday. God has it all under control.” But they’re not doing anything about it? They’re not doing any progress to get the business started. The business WILL NOT appear out of nowhere. Prayer will help you, but it won’t magically bring your business to pass.
God does His part, and you do yours.
Or have you hear people who are like, “I will get a job. God has it all under control. He will be my provider.” But yet, they aren’t even looking for a job! They’re sitting at home waiting for a phone call or (email) that will obviously never come.
People, do not be fooled.
He who works his land will have abundant food, but the one who chases fantasies will have his fill of poverty.
Laziness won’t get you anywhere. And don’t use prayer as an excuse. Pray and get up!
Lazy hands make a man poor, but diligent hands bring wealth. He who gathers crops in summer is a wise son, but he who sleeps during harvest is a disgraceful son.
