  49. 49. The Question: "Many people will always tell you that hard work in life leads to success and to prosperity. And some Bible texts seem to back up this view, including these:Wednesday, January 2, 13
  50. 50. The Question: Lazy hands make a man poor, but diligent hands bring wealth. (Prov. 10:4) Diligent hands will rule, but laziness ends in slave labour. (Prov. 12:24)Wednesday, January 2, 13
  51. 51. The Question: The sluggard craves and gets nothing, but the desires of the diligent are fully satisfied. (Prov. 13:4) Do you see a man skilled in his work? He will serve before kings; he will not serve before obscure men. (Prov. 22:29).Wednesday, January 2, 13
  52. 52. The Question: For every successful man who makes a lot of money, I could show you another ten who work just as hard but who just dont get the luck or the breaks! Does the Book of Proverbs offer us false promises?"Wednesday, January 2, 13
  53. 53. The Question: When Proverbs 22:29 speaks of the diligent serving "before kings" it is best understood in the sense that if you find a man or woman who actually serves before a king or a ruler youwill never find that such a person is lazy or somebody who avoids responsibility - he or she will be a diligent person.Wednesday, January 2, 13

  55. 55. The Question: Maybe God put Ecclesiastes straight after Proverbs in order to balance up the way things often happen in this life.

  56. 56. The Question: So to bring us all back to the reality that life can often seem quite unfair, we have verses like ,Wednesday, January 2, 13
  57. 57. The Question: I have seen something else under the sun: The race is not to the swift or the battle to the strong, nor does food come to the wise or wealth to the brilliant or favour to the learned; but time and chance happen to them all. (Ecclesiastes 9:11).Wednesday, January 2, 13
  58. 58. The Truth Success does not always follow hard work But no success without productive workWednesday, January 2, 13
  59. 59. Productiveness by Ayn Rand The virtue of Productiveness is the recognition of the fact that productive work is the process by which man’s mind sustains his life, the process that sets man free of the necessity to adjust himself to his background, as all animals do, and gives him the power to adjust his background to himself.Wednesday, January 2, 13
  60. 60. Productiveness by Ayn Rand Productive work is the road of man’s unlimited achievement and calls upon the highest attributes of his character: his creative ability, his ambitiousness, his self- assertiveness, his refusal to bear uncontested disasters, his dedication to the goal of reshaping the earth in the image of his valuesWednesday, January 2, 13
  61. 61. Productiveness by Ayn Rand “Productive work” does not mean the unfocused performance of the motions of some job. It means the consciously chosen pursuit of a productive career, in any line of rational endeavor, great or modest, on any level of ability. It is not the degree of a man’s ability nor the scale of his work that is ethically relevant here, but the fullest and most purposeful use of his mind.Wednesday, January 2, 13
  62. 62. Concluding Thoughts The American tax system allows you t o take funds out o the company tax free to train and develop themselves How can I do what I do, better and more efficiently tomorrow You dress where you re for where you are going!Wednesday, January 2, 13
