Ultimately everything is in the Lord’s hands and He has the final say, but that doesn’t mean we just do nothing.
Generally speaking, we reap what we sow as a natural result.
Spiritually it’s the same.
We can easily confuse diligence with works or law. But they are not the same.
Our levels of diligence and levels of priorities are directly related… we’re diligent with what we perceive as important.
Apostle Peter encourages to be diligent with our spiritual lives, meaning to “make effort, be prompt or earnest”
Perhaps the opposite of being diligent would be being lazy or complacent.
It all comes down to our attitude… our spiritual maturity and our attitudes are linked.
