Topic: The Pathway to Distinction in Life

Scripture: Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men. Proverbs 22:29
Thought For The Day: Principles are behind the making of principals.
Many people want to become great in life but few know how to get there. One reason many people remain small in life despite their quest for greatness is the negligence of Divine principles. Principles are behind the making of principals.
One of the principles that make a man great in life is diligence. Diligence, the ability to keep doing it and doing it well, is the bridge between where you are now and where you should be.
I heard the story of a rich young lady who had everything she needed but was single – getting married was a challenge. One day, she travelled to London for a wedding. As part of her diligent disposition, she washed all the used plates used at the wedding and ran errands for the guests. Unknown to her, a man who also left Nigeria for the same wedding noticed her, called the host and asked, ‘Who is that lady?’ The host replied, ‘She is one of our sisters who came from Nigeria for this occasion.’ Then the man said, ‘I have found my wife.’ That was how they got married thereafter.
Beloved, diligence is the bridge between your present and your future.
Remember this: Principles are behind the making of principals.
For Further Understanding, Get This Message: Diligence.

Prayer: LORD, help me to be diligent in life. Deliver me from the lifestyle of mediocrity, LORD, in Jesus’ Name.
