Proverbs of a 37 yr old man
Work Hard. Do not just wait for good things to happen to you, work hard to achieve your goals. Work hard and become a leader; be lazy and become a slave. Lazy people who refuse to work are only killing themselves. The cravings of the sluggard will be the death of them, because their hands refuse to work. All day long they crave and crave while the righteous give and don't hold back. Work and you will earn a living; if you sit around talking you will be poor. Yes, you will earn the trust and respect of others if you work for good; if you work for evil, you are making a mistake. Do not those who plot evil go astray? But those who plan what is good find love and faithfulness. Work hard, and you will have a lot of food; waste time, and you will have a lot of trouble. Never give up. Eagerly follow the Holy Spirit and serve the Lord. My friends, you must do all you can to show God has really chosen and selected you. If you keep on doing this, you won't stumble and fall. Then our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will give you a glorious welcome into his kingdom that will last forever.
