Proverbs 26:15-16 The slothful hideth his hand in his bosom; it grieveth him to bring it again to his mouth. The sluggard is wiser in his own conceit than seven men that can render a reason.
Laziness has become elusive in our culture today. At a glance I think, “How could anyone be lazy, everyone is always so busy!” Unfortunately,we tend to forget that being busy is a great place for lazy to hide yes the comfortable zone. Jesus knew this, because He said of false prophets, “By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thron bushes, or figs from thistles? Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit.” (Matthew 7:16-17) Laziness can be at the helm of the busiest of people, but rest assured you will know it by its fruit.
Please of note, rest is not the same thing as lazy. Laziness is a spiritual attack. REST is to know God and he became you’re provider Yes you FATHER indeed. It is an apathy that is never quenched for no particular reason. Rest is from the Lord! “Come all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest”. (Matthew 11:28)
Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye FIRST the KINGDOM OF GOD, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. Matthew 6:31-33 “PROVIDER”
