The sluggard says, “There is a lion in the road!
A lion is in the open square!”
As the door turns on its hinges, so does the sluggard on his bed.
The sluggard buries his hand in the dish; he is weary of bringing it to his mouth again.
The sluggard is wiser in his own eyes than seven men who can give a discreet answer. Proverbs 26:13-16
A sluggard is ‘a person who is habitually inactive or lazy’. In their mind is a warped perception of reality or a irrational fear that something bad could happen if action is taken. Progress is delayed and energy seems lacking in the life of a sluggard. And sadly, there is justification and a claim to be wiser than others.
Are there areas in my life that are not progressing as God desires, because I am afraid or being a sluggard?
Lord, help me be diligent and courageous so that I might experience and address all the opportunities You have planned.
