Blessed is the Soul of the Diligent

Blessed is he who has found his work; let him ask no other blessedness. He has a work, a life-purpose; he has found it and will follow it. Labor is life; from the inmost heart of the worker rises his God-given force, the sacred, celestial life-essence breathed into him by almighty God” (Thomas Carlyle).

Thomas Edison sent the following recommendations to a youth assembly that requested a message from him:

1)    Always be interested in whatever you undertake.
2)    Don’t mind the clock, but keeps at it, and let nature indicate the necessity of rest.
3)    Failures, so called, are the fingerposts pointing out the right direction to those who are willing to learn.
4)    Hard work and genuine interest in everything that makes for human progress will make men and women more valuable and acceptable to themselves and to the world.

The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing,
while the soul of the diligent is richly supplied” (Proverbs 13:4, ESV).
