“The labour of the foolish wearieth every one of them, because he knoweth not how to go to the city.” (Eccl. 10:15 KJV)
READ: Proverbs 22:29 KJV
When last did you update yourself in your area of interest? There is a ‘how to’ in everything. Have you sought ‘how to’ from the Lord concerning that issue, challenge, that idea, business? We are in a fast moving world. Change is the order of the day.
In Proverbs 22:29, diligence does not only connote “hard work” but also “know how.” No matter how diligent a man is, if he does not have the ‘know how’ he will make a fool of himself.
Today you can take a decision to always be at the cutting edge in your area of business by making conscious effort to update yourself. Seek for relevant materials, seek out those who have outstanding performance, find out relevant institution that can update you. Humble and submit yourself to their tutelage. Ask the Lord for wisdom to apply the knowledge acquired, and watch yourself dining with kings.
Oh Lord, let me not labour like the foolish, help me to humble myself before You, that I may be exalted in my season, in Jesus name.
