Pro 22:29 Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean [men].
There are times too when favour comes your way all because of your diligence in your work.
Diligence here covers your faithfulness, honesty, hardwork and dedication to your business.
Thank God the bible puts it in form of a question: “seest thou a man diligent in his business?”
This question can be seen to be answered in anybody’s life(Christmas, Muslims and Pagans alike) ‘cos it is a principle, a law that must be fulfilled.
If you are diligent, you will stand before kings and not before mere men no matter how long.
Are you diligent in the little you are doing?
