“Those too lazy to plow in the right season will have no food at the harvest.” Proverbs 20:4 NLT
A lazy person is someone who is unwilling to work. He or she can work, but will avoid work at any cost; they love to rest and enjoy themselves; they don’t want to do anything strenuous: give them something to do and they’ll grumble; they have to be pushed to work.
A lazy person cannot achieve great things. To be great and successful you must pay a price; it requires many hours of sacrifice.
Lazy people are quick to give up and quit; they allow obstacles prevent them from making progress, moving forward, and achieving their goals. Lazy people continue to give excuses and are quick to blame other people instead of accepting responsibility for their actions.
Don’t be lazy. There’s so much to be accomplished for God, for humanity, and for yourself. Our Lord Jesus Christ wasn’t lazy; we can’t be.
I pray for you today, that as you work God will reward you with success and prosper the works of your hands: in Jesus name. Amen.
