Success can be Yours

Proverbs 22:29

Sterling Principle # 5success

Observe people who are good

at their work—

Skilled workers are always in

demand and admired;

They don’t take a backseat to anyone.

There is more to skill than simply learning how to do a process.  Skilled workers have more than “know-how” under their belt.  They also have people skills.  They have mastered the previous four sterling principles.  1—They treat others with respect and are eager to lend a helping hand.  2—They avoid angry people.  3—They live debt-free and thus reduce the drama in their lives.  4—Their word is their bond—they can be trusted.

These people will always be in demand—whatever their skills.  God’s Word applied to our lives produces sterling qualities in our lives. Ecclesiastes 9:10 tells us “Whatever work you do, do your best.”  Whatever our work may be—washing dishes, digging ditches, putting out fires, teaching school, or President of the United States—integrate these sterling principles in all you do and say.  That is the supreme key to success in life.

If we refuse to give our best to even the lowliest job we will never be offered a better one.  The way a person gives themselves to their tasks at hand indicates their character.  What employers want more than anything is character!  Unless our character shines through the lowly tasks we will miss out on the promotions of life.  Our lives today are the consequences of the choices we made yesterday.

God’s Question: Can I trust you to give of your best?

God’s Promise: I’m on your side and rooting for you.

My Prayer to God:

I praise You for Your Words great advice for success.

I am sorry I haven’t always given my best to all tasks.

Thank You for being my best cheerleader.

Help me set a good example in all my work and encourage others.
