Diligence vs Laziness | Financial Peace Part 2

1 Timothy 6:6 But godliness with contentment is great gain

Enjoy God and his good gifts 

1 Timothy 6:7-10 For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that.  Those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.

Make it, Save it, Spend it, Give it 

Trust my Savings or my Saviour? 

No one should ever work. Work is the source of nearly all the misery in the world. Almost any evil you’d care to name comes from working or from living in a world designed for work. In order to stop suffering, we have to stop working. Bob Black (Abolition of Work) 

Genesis 2:15 The Lord God took Adam and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.

2 Timothy 2:12 if we endure, we will also reign with him.

1 Corinthians 6:3 Do you not know that we will judge angels? 

We’ll also have work to do, satisfying and enriching work that we can’t wait to get back to, work that’ll never be drudgery.  Randy Alcorn 

1 Corinthians 10:31 whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God 

Co-workers are watching 

Philippians 2:14-15 Do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.” Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky 

Influencers are watching 

Daniel 1:18-19 When the training period ordered by the king was completed, the chief of staff brought all the young men to King Nebuchadnezzar. The king talked with them, and no one impressed him as much as Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah. So they entered the royal service. 

Our Father is watching 

Colossians 3:23-24 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving. 

Diligence: Visualizing each task as a special assignment from the Lord and using all my energies to accomplish it.

Ecclesiastes 4:5-6 Fools fold their hands and ruin themselves. Better one handful with tranquillity than two handfuls with toil and chasing after the wind.

This is for You
