13A sluggard says, “There’s a lion in the road, a fierce lion roaming the streets!” 14As a door turns on its hinge so a sluggard turns on his bed. 15A sluggard buries his hand in the dish; he is too lazy to bring it back to his mouth. 16A sluggard is wiser in his own eyes than seven people who answer discreetly.

26: 13-16   If a person is not willing to do work, he or she can find endless excuses to avoid it. But laziness is more dangerous than a prowling lion. The less we do, the less we want to do, and the more useless we become. To overcome laziness, take a few small steps toward change. Set a concrete, realistic goal. Figure out the steps needed to reach it, and follow those steps. Pray for strength and persistence. To keep your excuses from making you useless, stop making useless excuses.

Truer words have never been spoken. Just like when i went to prison, I saw so many people that became the sluggard. It was so easy to find a reason not to work. Life has become much the same way. We have allowed society to set the norms of what they think is GOOD work ethics and principles and determined how much work we should do each week even each day. And in doing so society thinks or allows people to be lazy and not work as God intended us to work. Another scripture says if we don't work, we don't eat.

ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS and make sure that we find reasons to get up and go to work, not ways to keep from working!! by RICHARD DEAN BROOKS
