Desires of the Diligent

As a young boy I saw a baseball glove in a catalog that I desperately desired. But I didn’t have any money. Then I learned I could earn the same baseball glove if I sold boxes of Christmas cards.

The number of boxes I needed to sell seemed attainable in the beginning, but it became much harder than I thought going house to house. I suffered many disappointments, and, I considered quitting, but the allure of that baseball mitt kept driving me forward.

Finally, I achieved the goal! One of the sweetest days of my youth was receiving my prized glove in the mail!

Proverbs 13:4 teaches, “A sluggard’s appetite is never filled, but the desires of the diligent are fully satisfied.”

Diligence in our work has a satisfying reward.
