TOPIC: DISCIPLINE: THE FUEL FOR DILIGENCE
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: Diligence is the key to distinction in life. To be diligent is to stand out; to be diligent is to be eminent.
Sometime ago,”my wife told me, “I like the way you are so disciplined. When you want to do anything and you put your heart to it, you will always do it. Please, I would like you to pray for me for such grace.”
She said this because we have been married for more than twenty-five years and she sees me work in the night, in the day, in town and out of town. When we travel anywhere, I must maintain my schedule as rigid as it should be when I am home.
Beloved, the lifestyle of discipline is key to destiny fulfilment. When preparing to preach a message, I could go over one hundred Scriptures to preach one message even though I may not quote all the Scriptures in the message.
Discipline is the fuel for diligence and diligence is the platform for eminence. The Bible says, “Seest thou a man diligent in his business? He shall be eminent; he must stand before kings he is not permitted to stand before ordinary men.” (Proverbs 22″:29,”paraphrased). You must surely stand before kings if you are diligent in business.
Beloved, diligence is the key to distinction in life. To be diligent is to stand out; to be diligent is to be eminent. My counsel is, refuse the lifestyle of mediocrity; determine to be diligent.
Remember this”: Diligence is the key to distinction in life. To be diligent is to stand out; to be diligent is to be eminent.
- Read Scriptural passages on diligence like Proverbs 22:29 and others.
- Make up your mind to stand out in life by being diligent in what you do.
PRAYER: O Lord,”I ask for the grace to stand out in life and destiny by being diligent. I receive the grace for diligence, Lord in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: The extent to which we are able to step out determines the extent to which we can stand out. The extent of our action determines the extent of our manifestation. Culled from “21 FOOLISH THINGS PEOPLE DO” by Dr Paul Enenche.
