I know I have talked about diligence before- my blog reflects on this idea. But, it is such a good daily reminder to be diligent in the work that God has set before us. Whether, that is being a mother and homemaker that wipes poopy bottoms, scrapes crusty food off the floor too many times to count, and gets snotty kisses as often as she wants or being a father that goes to work in a job he has dreamed about having his whole life or a job that fulfills no childhood fantasy BUT pays the bills. God has called us to be diligent in whatever role He places us in. The Bible is full of verses detesting laziness and praising the work of the diligent. So, I encourage you to be diligent as you set out today to wash the dishes or deal with a less than pleasant client. God has called you to the place where you are.

Proverbs 12:4
Diligent hands will rule, but laziness will end in slave labor
