“In all labour there is profit: but the talk of the lips tendeth only to penury.” Proverbs 14:23 KJV
“All hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty.” Proverbs 14:23 NIV
God is looking for people who are ready and willing to work for Him. Don’t just talk about what you can do for Jesus. Get out in the world and work for Him! In our earthly jobs we get compensated for our work. Many of us get paid even more when we work overtime and are rewarded for outstanding performance. How much greater do you think that concept is with God?
Just talking leads to nothing. Are you working in some way for the Lord? If so, do you see positive results? The only proof of authentic ministry is positive godly results in other people’s lives. Many of us work hard, but for the wrong reasons and motives. Forget about success in this world, aim for success with God. For those who know Christ, that is the greatest success and reaps the greatest rewards.
