Today's Verse : Ecclesiastes 10:18

If a man is lazy, the rafters sag; if his hands are idle, the house leaks. — Ecclesiastes 10:18  

Thought

Laziness is not just an attitude; it is a lack of action. It is a choice to let important matters suffer and neglect what is necessary. The results of this laziness choice may not always be immediately evident. However, with time, the accumulating signs of decay make the results of idleness very clear. This is doubly true spiritually. I wonder how many people have remained lost because God's people were lazy about reaching out to the lost and broken. Yes, laziness isn't just an attitude; it is a choice not to act!




Prayer

Stir in me, dear Heavenly Father, a passion to do what is true and good and righteous. Convict my heart when I neglect what is important. Please help me discern the difference between laziness and a genuine need for rest and to balance my life between my many responsibilities. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
