If God created the Heavens and the earth in 6 days and these construction workers built a 30-story building in 15 days in China, how much more can you do? – Be inspired to put forth more effort into reaching your goals. You can perform wonders when you say no to fear, procrastination and limiting beliefs.
Relevant Bible verses on work ethic:
1 Thessalonians 2:9
Surely you remember, brothers and sisters, our toil and hardship; we worked night and day in order not to be a burden to anyone while we preached the gospel of God to you.
Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might, for in the realm of the dead, where you are going, there is neither working nor planning nor knowledge nor wisdom.
Exodus 31: 3-5
I have filled him with the Spirit of God, with skill, ability and knowledge in all kinds of crafts to make artistic designs for work in gold, silver and bronze, to cut and set stones, to work in wood, and to engage in all kinds of craftsmanship.
2 Thessalonians 3:10-12
For even when we were with you, we gave you this rule: “The one who is unwilling to work shall not eat.”We hear that some among you are idle and disruptive. They are not busy; they are busybodies. Such people we command and urge in the Lord Jesus Christ to settle down and earn the food they eat.
