Daily Bible Verse and Devotional – Proverbs 10:26

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? To do that, you’ve got to choose to not be lazy. Instead, be diligent and a hard worker. When others are standing around talking, find some work 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. And don’t just do it for a day or a week. It can take several months to really make it a new habit and for others to notice. Keep at it, and others will notice, but most importantly, God will notice.

Decide today to work hard, do your best, and see how God can bless you in what you put your hand toward.
