Proverbs -- Diligent and Fat

The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing, but the soul of the diligent is made fat (Proverbs 13:4).

This verse shows one of the clearest contrasts in the Bible between a person who is lazy (a sluggard) and one who is industrious (diligent). The lazy groan and complain (from their bed of sleep) but do nothing. The diligent (determined) are rewarded with the fruit (results) of their planning and hard work in every area of life for the sake of Christ. Whatever you do… do all in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ…. (Colossians 3:17).
