DILIGENCE – A KEY TO EXCELLENCE
By DIGC13 January 2021
It takes diligence, dutifulness and paying attention to details to arrive at excellence.
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: It takes diligence, dutifulness and paying attention to details to arrive at excellence.
Previously, we saw that the right decision is one key to a life of excellence and distinction.
Today, I will give you another key to excellence and distinction, and that is diligence.
Diligence implies doing things carefully, thoroughly and thoughtfully.
Now, one department of diligence is paying attention to details. A diligent person pays attention to details. It is not possible for anybody to arrive at excellence without diligence. If you are diligent in business, you are not permitted to stand before ordinary people (Prov. 22:29). To do things anyhow is to end nowhere. It takes diligence, dutifulness and paying attention to details to arrive at excellence. Where everything goes, nothing goes.
A life of shabbiness is the foundation for mediocrity. A man who is diligent today will be eminent tomorrow. It is not possible to be thoughtless and be result-full. It takes a level of thoroughness to see excellence in life. It is thoroughness in activity that is called diligence.
Diligence determines eminence. What you don’t work out will never work out. Carelessness is the doorway to uselessness. Show me a careless man today and I will show you a useless man tomorrow. Thoroughness is the key to excellence. Those who stand out do things well. To take things for granted is to end up grounded in life. You cannot behave anyhow and go anywhere.
Therefore, make up your mind to be diligent in everything you do.
Remember this: It takes diligence, dutifulness and paying attention to details to arrive at excellence.
- Make up your mind to be diligent and dutiful.
- Resist mediocrity by all means.
PRAYER: O Lord, I receive the grace to be diligent in all that I do. I reject every spirit of average existence, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
