"All hard work brings profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty." This one is taken from the book of Proverbs, chapter 14 the verse 23. In this case, the Bible indicates that hard work leads to profits which means money. On the other hand, running your mouth without putting any work into whatever it is you want to achieve, will only leave you poor.
In the same book of Proverbs, but this time from chapter 20 the verse 13, the Bible says this. "Do not love sleep or you will grow poor, stay awake and you will have food to spare." We all know there is no way you will get paid without doing any work, unless you have worked hard and you now let your money work for you through investment. Aside that, you will never get paid if you remain on your bed all day long, well, I have never seen a job that pays for sleeping all day long. Have you?
Proverbs 13 verse 11 also tells us that, "wealth gained hastily will dwindle, but whoever gathers little by little will increase it." In this instance, the Bible is cautioning us to stop running after get rich quick schemes. Some of these schemes are even fake, and end up draining the little money that you have on you. Instead of chasing after riches, work steadily and gather your wealth, only then will you have the true joy of enjoying what you worked for.
