A sluggard’s appetite is never filled, but the desires of the diligent are fully satisfied. — Proverbs 13:4 NIV
Procrastination is a powerful device of the enemies of God. We previously looked explored Proverbs 13:4 KJV. Now let’s look at Proverbs 13:4 in the New International Version, “A sluggard’s appetite is never filled, but the desires of the diligent are fully satisfied.” A sluggard is a person who is lazy and doesn’t have any get-up-and-go. A lazy person will never have their dreams come true, because dreams don’t become reality without work.
A diligent person will be fully satisfied, because a hard-working and industrious personal will always find success. As the saying goes, “Where there’s a will, there’s a way.” When a person is diligent, they will put effort behind their dreams. The headlines boast of the bad economy and how people can’t achieve the American dream. But dreams are only dreams until an effort is placed behind it. There are things I want to accomplish in my life. I regret opportunities that I let pass me by, but God is faithful to those who are faithful to him.
