The soul of the sluggard desireth, and hath nothing: but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat.
Commit thy works unto the Lord, and thy thoughts shall be established.
In all labour there is profit: but the talk of the lips tendeth only to penury.
And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ. But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons.
And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
A man shall be satisfied with good by the fruit of his mouth: and the recompence of a man’s hands shall be rendered unto him.
He that tilleth his land shall be satisfied with bread: but he that followeth vain persons is void of understanding.
The husbandman that laboureth must be first partaker of the fruits.
I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.
