The godly does not suffer hunger

“The Lord will not let the godly go hungry, but he refuses to satisfy the craving of the wicked. Lazy people are soon poor; hard workers get rich.

Proverbs 10:3-4 NLT


Let me tell you that anyone who identifies himself, as a Christian should be labeled as lazy.

If at any time you have given reasons to be classified in this way, then you have not given a good testimony as a child of God.

God has promised us that we will not let go hungry, but this does not mean that we should expect the food lying fall from the sky.

God wants us to strive in our work; we are called to do our job with excellence, dedication and responsibility.

Our business must always honor God, and this is not measured by the academic endorsement or amount of income; is measured by the fact that it does not harm the name of our God and benefits others.

We should do our work with gratitude, recognizing that through it, God gives us “our daily bread.”
