Work Intelligently, Not Excessively

Work Intelligently, Not Excessively

In Proverbs 10:22 it says: The blessing of the Lord brings wealth, without painful toil for it. This means that God is the one who blesses and prospers us. When He blesses us, there is no pain, sorrow, nor toiling attached to it. We can all agree that we hear people say "work harder and do more", "keep pushing even when your tired", or "work harder and achieve more". Truth be told, many people live by this and end up running themselves down and getting worn out faster which makes one unable to continue working or forces you to slow down sooner that expected.

Toiling is engaging in hard, continuous, work, which involves physical or mental labor. It implies exerting strenuous effort over a prolonged period to achieve a particular goal or complete a task.

What I often tell people is that working smarter, and not necessarily harder is better. This involves finding ways to streamline processes, eliminate unnecessary steps, and optimize your workflow to achieve better results in less time. You can work diligently without toiling because God our Father in Heaven is the Blessor.
