The plans of the diligent lead surely to plenty, but those of everyone who is hasty, surely to poverty.
Proverbs 21:5

God’s wisdom in today’s scripture shows us how to walk in increase: Be diligent. It tells us that being hasty for success—unwilling to work steadily and with diligence—will lead to poverty.

Beloved, God is more interested in your long-term success. He doesn’t want you to turn to quick-fixes to have overnight success. That kind of success is usually fleeting and may come with a terrible price. God wants you to have good success that lasts a lifetime.

So don’t be hasty, but take time to be conscious of His love and grace toward you, and to meditate on His Word to gain wisdom. Be diligent first and foremost in pursuing or meditating on your righteousness in Christ and His favor on you.

When you do everything on the firm foundation of His unmerited favor, you’ll allow His Spirit and His Word to develop your character and enlarge your heart. This will make you wise and safe for increase and success.
