Proverbs 10:4
"He who has a slack hand becomes poor, but the hand of the diligent makes rich."(these are all from the  New King James Version)

Proverbs 13:4 4 The soul of a lazy man desires, and has nothing; But the soul of the diligent shall be made rich.

Proverbs 6:6-11  Go to the ant, you sluggard! Consider her ways and be wise, 7 Which, having no captain, Overseer or ruler, 8 Provides her supplies in the summer, And gathers her food in the harvest.  9 How long will you slumber, O sluggard? When will you rise from your sleep? 10 A little sleep, a little slumber, A little folding of the hands to sleep—  11 So shall your poverty come on you like a prowler, And your need like an armed man.

Hebrews 6:11-12 "And we desire that each one of you show the same diligence to the full assurance of hope until the end, 12 that you do not become sluggish, but imitate those who through faith and patience inherit the promises."

Galatians 6:9 9 "And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart."

1 peter 4:2 that he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh for the lusts of men, but for the will of God.

Ephesians 5:15-6 15 See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, 16 redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
There is probably more, but that is all I can think of at the moment.
