4Lazy hands make for poverty, but diligent hands bring wealth. 5He who gathers crops in summer is a prudent son, but he who sleeps during harvest is a disgraceful son.

10: 4-5   Every day has 24 hours filled with opportunities to grow, serve, and be productive. Yet we so easily waste time, letting life slip from our grasp. Refuse to be a lazy person, sleeping or frittering away the hours meant for productive work. See time as God’s gift, and seize opportunities to live diligently for him.

10: 4   This proverb doesn’t permit us to write off people who are poor as lazy. Lack of effort and refusal to work will lead to poverty. But poverty can occur due to sickness, death, injustice, or other tragedies. Whatever the cause, those with means to help others in need have the duty to respond with compassion.
