Is Hustle Culture Godly?

Dear Brethren, I hope this message meets you well. Today, I would like to talk about hustle culture. In today’s world, there is a term known as hustle culture, where people are praised for how hard they work and how stressed they are. However, we need to ask, is this concept Godly at all? Well, according to my understanding of the word of God, hard work is desirable. God loves people who are about their father’s business and who work hard. However, God also wants us to know that he is our source, and he is the one who crowns our hard work with success. The people who promote hustle culture make it seem as though a person is the sole author of their destiny and God has no part in it. I tell you my friends, we need to put God first in everything that we do. Just as there is fruitful labour, there is unfruitful labour, and God is able to lead us to the path that is right for us, the path that would give us the best return for our efforts. God is also able to creatively make everything work for our good. Therefore, we need to put God first, and hard work next. Not hard work first, and God after, God is not a side piece, as a matter of fact, he is the author of our destinies.

The Bible says in Psalm 127:2

It is useless for you to work so hard
    from early morning until late at night,
anxiously working for food to eat;
    for God gives rest to his loved ones.

The Bible says in Psalm 128:1-2

How joyful are those who fear the Lord—
    all who follow his ways!
You will enjoy the fruit of your labor.
    How joyful and prosperous you will be!

The Bible says in Matthew 6:25-34

25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life[a]?

28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Brethren, we need to put God first, and everything else would be added onto us. Trust me, it is not easy, because sometimes you have many commitments, but you need to try to carve out some time for God everyday (set apart a dedicated time for him). Keep striving, and I pray that God would bless all of us in the name of Jesus Amen. I pray that our names and the names of our loved ones would also remain in the book of life in the name of Jesus, Amen.
