“Diligence is a law of life, and many of the proverbs of Scripture praise this trait and condemn laziness…much of our sin comes from our inherent laziness not to make the effort to do the right thing in our thought and actions… We use diligence to fight against sloth or laziness. Diligence is doing any task (work/chore/job/responsibility) until it is completed to the very best of our ability.” (Rev. Andrew J. Demotses, Sacramental Living, Annalisa Boyd)
