TOPIC: DILIGENT OR NEGLIGENT?*

*Read I Kings 11:28*

*MEMORISE*
*Do you see a man who excels in his work? He will stand before kings; He will not stand before unknown men (Proverbs 22: 29)*

*EXPOSITION*
The Cambridge Dictionary defines diligence as being careful and serious in one’s work. It implies work done in a careful and determined way.
Two childhood friends were employed in the same company on the same day, after graduating from the same University, the same year. John, after a year, was promoted while Peter remained at the level of entrance into the company. Peter was disgruntled by this, claiming he was also due for promotion, just like his friend, John. On hearing this, the director decided to prove the reason behind his decision. He then asked Peter to go to the street and find out the price of a ball of watermelon. Peter returned with only the price, which was Three Hundred naira only (N300).
The director then sent John the same errand. He returned with the price of a ball of watermelon, the price of the smaller cut sizes, how it can be preserved, where the seller buys in bulk, how much the seller can supply the company, staff, management on a weekly, monthly and yearly basis, and how much discount the seller is willing to give the company. It was then evident enough why John deserved the promotion than Peter. He was always detailed, diligent and meticulous in all his dealings, leaving no stone unturned.
There are people who cannot be trusted with some sensitive tasks, because they have never done anything detailed before. How diligent are you in your line of duty? Do you carry out your tasks meticulously, or shabbily? Do you pay acute attention to details, or you do it anyhow? What about your service to God? Can God be proud of you enough to commit greater tasks into your care? Remember God gives His greatest tasks to His most competent and diligent men. As you go out today, determine to be diligent in all your endeavors.

*PRAYER POINTS*
1. Lord, help me to be diligent, at all times, for You, in Jesus’ name.
2. Spirit of excellence, come upon me , now, in Jesus’ name
3. From today, I receive the grace to offer acceptable and sacrificial services to God, in Jesus’ name.

*EXTRA READING FOR TODAY: Job. 28:2 - 30:11; Acts 25:13 - 26:7*

*Welcome to August, your month of new dimension. In this new month, you shall enjoy the covenant of ease in every of your life's endeavours. You shall enjoy God's glorious goodness in Jesus name Amen. No more lack, limitation or loss in Jesus name Amen. Enjoy His awesome grace.

*HAVE A REMARKABLE MONTH. SHALOM*
