What are the benefits of being busy?

Proverbs 31:17, 27She is energetic and strong, a hard worker. . . . She carefully watches everything in her household and suffers nothing from laziness.

Many of life’s pursuits require long periods of concentrated effort. A busy planting season is followed by period of steady growth, and this is followed by a busy harvest. A wise worker knows how to pace himself to reap the rewards of his labor without becoming exhausted.

Ecclesiastes 11:6Plant your seed in the morning and keep busy all afternoon, for you don’t know if profit will come from one activity or another—or maybe both.

One of life’s greatest challenges is learning to use your time wisely. Rich harvests cannot come from lazy fingers, poor timing, or bad planning. If you want to see your labor bear fruit, expect to put in hard work and a lot of time.
