Daily Bible Verse and Devotional – Proverbs 10:26

Daily Bible Verse and Devotional on not being lazy employee

Lazy people irritate their employers, like vinegar to the teeth or smoke in the eyes. – Proverbs 10:26 (NLT)

Do you want to stand out and get promoted at your job? Then do what this verse says, be a diligent hard worker. When others are standing around talking, find something to do. When you come across a new problem, instead of complaining about it, come up with a solution and run it by your boss. Offer to help in areas that are beyond your immediate duties.

Let’s face it, most of us are naturally lazy and would rather just do the least that is expected. However, this verse says that being lazy just irritates your boss and makes life harder for them.

Be a blessing by going over and beyond in your work. Don’t just do it for a day, a week or a month. It takes several months to really make it a new habit and for others to notice. Choose to apply this simple truth to your life and see results.
