True success requires hard work! In our society today there is an ever-increasing desire for the shortcut to success. No such route exists. Patience, dedication, and sacrifice are the only ways to have true lasting results of your efforts; especially when working for the Lord. There are some quick ways to reach a level that looks like success, but the truth will eventually be shown.
The Bible tells us that we reap what we sow (Galatians 6:9). You get out what you put in. There are some times where you can fool some people, but you cannot get over on Christ. In working for the Lord; the reward He gives you will be EXACTLY what you deserve. Don’t try to cut corners in God’s work. It may hurt sometimes when other people SEEM to be getting over, but Jesus knows. Have patience, work hard, and know that God will reward you accordingly.
