“Do you see someone skilled in their work? They will serve before kings; they will not serve before officials of low rank.” Proverbs 22:29
There are those people in our world who think they can cheat their way to the top. They may cut corners, put up a good façade in their mediocre work. And it’s possible to achieve some success for a season. However, poor work does have a way of being found out.
The best way to achieve long lasting success and a well-known name is to be skilled at your work. Those who labor with integrity and diligence, those who are masters in their fields, can’t help but succeed. The word goes out that their work is the finest in the city, the finest in the state, the finest in the country, and finally, the best in the world. If someone is the most accomplished person at what they do, they will be the ones called upon to serve Kings.
If we want to be successful, we become skilled at what we do.
Father, help us to be serving others to the best of our ability, as if we were serving You.
