God Sees

God does not look at the outward appearance of things. Rather, He sees the heart of every matter and the true motive behind what is being done and rewards, or judges, accordingly.

I traverse the way of righteousness,
In the midst of the paths of justice,
That I may cause those who love me to inherit wealth,
That I may fill their treasuries.

—Proverbs 8:20–21 NKJV


God does not condone laziness or passivity in His children. Rather, He rewards those who work hard at the endeavours He commits to them.

He who tills his land shall be satisfied with bread, but he who follows worthless pursuits is lacking in sense and is without understanding (Proverbs 12:11 Amplified Bible).

The hand of the diligent will rule, but the lazy man will be put to forced labor (Proverbs 12:24 NKJV).

In all labor there is profit, but idle talk leads only to poverty (Proverbs 14:23 NKJV).
