Hard work will give you power while being lazy will make you a slave.
No matter what occupation we are in, we need to work hard to succeed. If we do not work hard, chances for success is even lower, while a person is at their best because they gave it all that they got. What would please God?
Never be lazy, but work hard and serve the Lord enthusiastically. – Romans 12:11
We are not to impress people with our hard work —
Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. – Colossians 3:23
