How long will yo lie down, O sluggard? ,,,A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest--Your poverty will come in like a vagabond and your need like an armed man. Proverbs 6:9-11
Hard work pays off in the future. Laziness pays off now. Proverbs has a lot to say about laziness. They crave but get nothing. They don't have enough strength to bring food to their mouths. They don't plow, they beg. They die because they refused to work. They find any excuse to stay in. Like a door on a hinge. They move but never go anywhere. They are wise in their own eyes. Christians should be motivated to work and do good works. Industriousness is a tribute to Jesus living in us. Laziness is a reproach to God. Let's get with it.
