Would you like to be known as a successful person or as someone who just gets by?
Would you like to meet and socialize with important people? And by the way, there is a difference between important and successful people.
Seem impossible to you? It’s not. . .according to the Word of God specifically in Proverbs 22:29 in the King James Version which says:
“Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men.”
The key to meeting, working and socializing with important people is to be “diligent” in your business.
It’s important to understand that being diligent in your business does not necessarily mean you have to own your own business.
The word diligent is the Hebrew word mahiyr (H4106) which means:
“quick, prompt, skilled, ready.”
The Message Bible translation of Proverbs 22:9 says:
“Observe people who are good at their work—skilled workers are always in demand and admired; they don't take a backseat to anyone.”
