Integrity Moments - May 5, 2017


Hard Work Ain’t Easy

It’s much easier to chase fantasies than to work hard. But you can’t eat fantasies.

That is, unless you’re Walt Disney or Pixar. But it still takes hard work to develop your fantasies so people will buy them.

No matter how you look at it, working hard is critical!

Weave wisdom into hard work, and you’ll live a good life. Look at it another way: While you’re working hard, you’re going to think about something, so think wise thoughts.

So many people want to become leaders, wealthy, or famous. But they don’t work hard now.

Proverbs 12:11 teaches, “A hard worker has plenty of food, but a person who chases fantasies has no sense.”

It’s tragic when lazy people get leadership positions. If you’re hiring, only settle for hard workers.
