Sometimes the KJV is just great. When you want to talk about laziness, what are better comparisons than a sloth or a slug? I am looking to put together a study on laziness through the Proverbs and I jotted down my initial thoughts. Full length study yet to be released.
Proverbs 6:6-11: It’s not all about the here and now. Investment must become personal not policed.
10:26: Ignorance of import. Other people’s feelings can be more important than yours.
12:24: All men are created equal but they don’t all end up that way.
13:4: Good intentions are not good enough.
15:19: Obedience obliterates obstacles. Sloth sows sorrows.
18:9: Paucity of purpose stifles stewardship.
19:24: King sedentary.
20:4: Good excuses are not good enough. Neither are bad ones!
21:25-26: The exacerbated entitlement life. I deserve this for no apparent reason and all my expectations should be met or exceeded or life’s not worth living.
22:13/26:13: Justification. Every vice can be made a virtue if you are smart enough.
24:30-34: A lot of little equals a lot.
26:14: A lack of blanket victory. A life lived by not living. We have such a short time to prepare for such a long time!
26:15: Neglect of the necessities.
26:16: Since I can’t do everything I won’t do anything. Someone else will get to it. Stupid idea. There are a lot of people better than me who can do that. That’s not my ___. Am I my brother’s keeper? She wouldn’t do that for me. Etc…
