Proverbials: Part One

"The plans of the diligent lead surely to abundance,
but everyone who is hasty comes only to poverty."
~Provers 21:5~

I am constantly reading through the Proverbs and love the practical wisdom they give. This morning I was reading chapter 21 and have been pondering several of them. Verse 5 has an interesting contrast. It speaks of two kinds of people: the diligent and the hasty. One ends in abundance and the other in poverty. Both, seemingly, are driven, in a sense, by accomplishment but go about it in different ways. The diligent are productive yet with wisdom and prudence. The hasty just want to get the job done and are careless in the process. I pray that I would be diligent; never hasty!
