Assurance of Abundance

by | Diligence

(Proverbs 21:5 NRSV)

”The plans of the diligent lead surely to abundance, but everyone who is hasty comes only to want.“


Proverbs 21:5 emphasizes the vital distinction between diligent planning and hasty decisions, correlating each with distinct outcomes. Diligence, characterized by intentionality and consistency, forms the bedrock for prosperous plans. The passage assures that the diligent, with their purposeful and strategic approach, will inevitably yield abundance. It underscores the value of diligence, highlighting its role in crafting plans that lead to prosperity.

Conversely, the passage warns against hasty actions, indicating a link between impulsive decisions and eventual scarcity. Those who act hastily, driven by impulse rather than thoughtful intention, are prone to experience lack. This contrast emphasizes the importance of deliberate, well-thought-out decisions, advocating for a calm and intentional approach to avoid the pitfalls of haste that lead to scarcity.

The accompanying prayer acknowledges the biblical promise of abundance for the diligent while seeking divine guidance to remain composed and intentional in decision-making. It urges reliance on God’s wisdom to cultivate a diligent spirit, steering away from hasty choices and embracing intentional planning for the assurance of abundance promised in Scripture.
