43 – We Work Hard for No Money

formula

Today’s podcast is about work, productivity, God’s sovereignty over all, and what happens when we become entitled.

Scripture:

Lazy people are soon poor;
hard workers get rich. Proverbs 10:4

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

Work hard and become a leader;
be lazy and become a slave. Proverbs 12:24

Lazy people want much but get little,
but those who work hard will prosper. Proverbs 13:4

Work brings profit,
but mere talk leads to poverty! Proverbs 14:23

If you love sleep, you will end in poverty.
Keep your eyes open, and there will be plenty to eat! Proverbs 20:13

Lazy people consider themselves smarter
than seven wise counselors. Proverbs 26:16

Takeaways:

1. Entitlement is not godly.

2. Laziness is not godly.

3. Both often lead to crime or some sort of slavery.

4. Both are an indication of pride or self-centeredness.

5. Hard work = provision and leadership

6. But even when the formulas don’t work, there is God.
