The Reward of Diligence (Written By: Joel Osteen)

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE
“…the appetite of   the diligent is abundantly supplied”
(Proverbs 13:4, AMP)
TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria
God longs to pour out His   favor and blessing on you. He longs to show you His goodness and provision.   He promises to do His part, but you have to do your part, too. You have to be   diligent. First of all, be diligent in seeking His ways and following His commands.   Then, be diligent with what you have in your hand, with your time and   resources.In Matthew, Jesus tells a parable about three men whose employer entrusted them with some money called talents. Two of the men were diligent and invested the talents and received a great return. The third man was afraid and buried what he was given. The first two men were rewarded and praised for their diligence while the third man was rebuked.Follow the example of the   first two men and look for ways to be diligent with what you have in your   hand. Whatever you do, do it with excellence. Be the best you can be and go   the extra mile even when you think it goes unnoticed. Understand that when   people don’t notice, God notices and promises to reward the appetite of the   diligent.
A PRAYER FOR TODAY
Heavenly Father,   thank You for Your favor and blessing on my life. Today I choose to be   diligent. I choose to live in excellence and do everything to the best of my   ability. I give You all the glory in Jesus’ name. Amen.
— Joel &   Victoria Osteen
