[4] A sluggard’s appetite is never filled,

but the desires of the diligent are fully satisfied.



You’ll never be satisfied if you sit back lazily and wish for things.  You’ll want more and more given to you and never be satisfied.



The Lord expects us to work hard.  With that, we will be satisfied with ourselves for working hard and perhaps it will be in God’s will for us to have things in this life as a result of our hard work.  Regardless of whether the Lord wills for us to have creature comforts in this life as a result of our hard work and his blessings, working for the Lord is truly satisfying.  Glorifying the Lord by following his will and not just sitting back with our gift of salvation, but rather using our spiritual gifts to further the kingdom. This brings satisfaction from obedience.



Lord thank you for the blessings you provide me every single day. Thank you for my spiritual gifts and I pray that I obediently apply my gifts for your glory. In Jesus’ holy name I pray, amen.
