First things First

He who has a slack hand becomes poor, But the hand of the diligent makes rich.
He who gathers in summer is a wise son; He who sleeps in harvest is a son who causes shame. Proverbs 10 (NKJV)

Every time I see the word diligence, I think of hard work; however diligence is more than just working hard. Diligence describes hard work as much as it describes right work.

Growing up, for a while I lived with my grandmother in a village in Africa. Sometimes mama sent my cousin and me to get something from the farm. Just about halfway to the farm is a small river we usually dip in, most people did to cool off in the tropical sun. However, there’s a big difference between us and the other dippers, who usually were returning from the farm while we were on our way to the farm. Play is good, recreation is important but it shouldn’t be at the expense of work.

Diligence starts with being able to set the right priorities. In his book First things First, Stephen Covey asserts, “When we talk about time management, it seems ridiculous to worry about speed before direction, about saving minutes when we may be wasting years.” He advocates, there are no short cuts in life, you must plan weekly and not daily, plan the important not the urgent.

“Things which matter most must never be at the mercy of things which matter least.” - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. Finally in the words of Jesus Christ, I must work the works of Him who sent me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work. John 9:4

There is something you were put here to accomplish, start doing it now, you have no hold on time and you don’t control the seasons. Through diligence I see time and season work for you.
