Romans12:11 – Do not be slothful in zeal, but be burning in spirit, serving the Lord.


The pattern of diligent

The pattern of diligent

  • The Lord Jesus Himself is a good pattern of diligent:

  • 1. The Lord Jesus as a slave of God ,He did more than what He spoke. He diligently served both God and man. He also taught His disciples to be diligent.

  • 2. Jesus was born in a carpenter’s house. He was also a carpenter, did the work of carpentry until 30 years old, then He began His ministry. (Matthew 13:53-56)

  • 3. He was in the things of the Father continuously. Jesus advanced in wisdom and stature and the grace of God was upon Him. (Luke 2:40-52)

  • 4. As the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve and give His life as a ransom for many. (Mark 10:45)


Diligent versus slothful

  • 5. Jesus fed 5,000 people and took care of all the needs of people around Him. (Mark 6:34-44)

  • 6. He spent the whole night in prayer to God for the appointing of 12 apostles. (Luke 6:12-16)

  • 7. He rose up very early in the morning, and He went to a deserted place to pray to seek the will of God for His gospel service. ( Mark 1:32-35)

  • 8. While Jesus was working, He asked His disciples to lift up their eyes and look on the fields in order to reap His harvest. (John 4:35-38)

  • 9. The Lord likened Himself as the good shepherd who looks for the lost sheep. He goes after the lost one until He finds it. (Luke 15:3-7) The Lord also says that He is the good shepherd who lays down His life for the sheep. (John 10:2-11)


Diligent versus slothful

“ A slack hand causes poverty, But the hand of the diligent makes rich.” (Proverb 10:4)

He who gathers in summer is a prudent son, But he who sleeps at harvest time is a son who brings shame. (Proverb 10:5)

The hand of the diligent will rule, But the slothful will be under forced labor. (Proverb 12:24)

The soul of the sluggard desires and has nothing, But the soul of the diligent will be made fat. (Proverb 13:4)

Connecting to the right verse:

A slack hand . is a prudent son

He who gathers in summer . causes poverty

The hand of the diligent . be under forced labor

But the slothful will . makes rich

But he who sleeps at harvest time .will rule

The hand of the diligent . is a son who brings shame
