God first gave man a job before he showed him what to eat. God does not talk about food until he has talked about work.

The garden you don't keep and dress is not permitted to offer food to you.

When you have one rich man in the midst of six poor people, what you have are seven poor people.


No matter the promise of God on your life, if you don't work, it will never come to pass.

Isaac didn't prosper on the platform of his father's wealth, he prospered through the work of his hands.

Abraham was a hard worker; Isaac, a tireless worker; and Jacob, a creative worker.

There is a time to pray and a time to work. There is a time to even watch Christian television, and a time to read your Bible.

There is dignity in labor. Idleness is an enemy of destiny; don't give it room.

Many givers have not experienced a change of position because God does not throw money down to people from heaven. He only prospers the work of your hands. If you're doing nothing, there is no channel through which God can bless you.


Work is God's antidote against all manner of weakness and sickness. Work is God's device for healthy and strong living.

Another benefit of commitments is creativity. When you are committed, you're naturally creative; ideas start flowing to enhance your approach on the job.

I don't see work as punishment, but as "polishment". I see it as God polishing my life, causing it to shine by the privilege of work.

"You cannot pour yourself into your work and not be successful. Not pouring yourself into your work and expecting success it's like attempting to pluck a star out of the sky."

You are either a worker or a beggar. It is a clear choice that we need to make. 

We cannot rebuild by praying and fasting alone, neither can we rebuild our lives by only reading the Bible every hour of the day; we can only rebuild it by working it out. Nothing is more impactful than your examples. When you start working, your children will follow suit, their own children will plug into it as well; and before you know what is happening, you have a responsible lineage.
