Daily Bible Verse and Devotion – Proverbs 12:24

BIble Verse for Teens on Working Hard Work hard and become a leader; be lazy and become a slave. – Proverbs 12:24

I remember a time in history class when I got a bad grade. For me, bad grades were really rare, so I was very upset by it. I stayed after class and asked my teacher why I had received such a bad grade on my history project. She told me that she expected more from me, she knew this project wasn’t my best work and so she had given me a lower grade.

When I had been making this project, I had watched other students in my class. They weren’t putting much effort into their projects, which made me think, if they’re being lazy, maybe I should be lazy too. I didn’t give my teacher my best work, and my grade suffered because of it.

I learned the hard way that laziness doesn’t pay off. If you want to get good grades at school you’ve got to put in some extra work and effort. So if you want to be successful and a leader, you’ve got to work hard. You’ve got to put in a little extra effort to get better results in your life.

So today, if you’ve become lazy at school or in some other area, choose to make some adjustments. Choose to put in a little extra effort and work just a little bit harder. Simple things like showing up a few minutes early or doing an extra homework problem each night make a big difference. To become successful, you’ve got to work hard.
