Insincerity is a terrible character flaw that has led to the undoing of different generations of mankind.
Take for instance Cain. He had no reason whatsoever not to have known that it was the nature and attitude of his sacrifice that made the Righteous God reject his offering.
However, because he was not sincere to himself, he did what he did and he forever lived with its consequences. One dimension of the insincerity of men is manifested when people speak or work against paying a labourer his due wages.
If you are one of such people, please know that this character is not a part of God’s nature and His word is against it. In 1 Timothy 5:18, God said:
Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward. Some people envy hardworking colleagues who are being promoted. As it is generally assumed, promotion comes with its responsibilities as well as its attendant goodies and benefits.
First, I want you to know that since God has said that He who does not work should not eat, the righteousness of God makes it imperative that he who works must eat, (2 Thessalonians 3:10, 1 Timothy 5:18). Secondly, as you lay your bed, so will lie on it. The more diligent you are in business, the more comfortable you will be after fulfilling all godly conditions.
Thirdly, when you are diligent in your vocation, business or job, you will be promoted to lead, because Proverbs 12:24 says, The hand of the diligent shall bear rule: but the slothful shall be under tribute.
Remember that except the Lord builds the house, they labour in vain that build it (Psalms 127:1). This consideration has to do with being faithful in paying your tithes, offerings, vows and the first fruits of your increase (Malachi 3:10, Psalm 50:14, Proverbs 3:9).
Beloved, the most needful of all these is that you give your life to Christ and accept the redemption which He used His life to procure for all mankind. It shall be well with you. Please, kindly share this divine message to your friends, families and colleagues at your working place via the social buttons below. God bless you.
