Sometimes I read over words without stopping to think about what they really mean.

Today’s word is:

dil·i·gent

1.

constant in effort to accomplish something; attentive and persistent in doing anything

2.

done or pursued with persevering attention; painstaking

In the bible:

2 Chronicles 24:13
The men in charge of the work were diligent, and the repairs progressed under them. They rebuilt the temple of God according to its original design and reinforced it.

Proverbs 10:4
Lazy hands make a man poor, but diligent hands bring wealth.

Proverbs 12:24
Diligent hands will rule, but laziness ends in slave labor.

Proverbs 12:27
The lazy man does not roast his game, but the diligent man prizes his possessions.

Proverbs 13:4
The sluggard craves and gets nothing, but the desires of the diligent are fully satisfied.

Proverbs 21:5
The plans of the diligent lead to profit as surely as haste leads to poverty.

1 Timothy 4:15
Be diligent in these matters; give yourself wholly to them, so that everyone may see your progress.
