If you’re a fan of R&B Divas L.A., you may have seen the episode that featured the ladies marrying themselves in a ceremony. They each had to take a deep look at the women they had become and decide if they were really worthy of self-love. The “Will I Marry Me,” exercise asked some thought-provoking questions that got me to thinking about how they could apply to other areas of our lives.

We do a lot of complaining about the way we are treated in relationships and on our jobs, but how often do we really look at the man or woman in the mirror?
I’m amazed at how many people are only willing to give 40, 50 or, on a good day, 60 percent of themselves to their jobs but still expect to see the benefits of people giving much more.
Don’t expect results that you haven’t worked for. It just won’t happen and it isn’t right.
But beyond that, working hard is the Godly thing to do and there are all kinds of scriptures that back this up.
Colossians 3:23 says “Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men.”
And Proverbs 14:23 says “In all toil there is profit, but mere talk tends only to poverty.”
