An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

Introducing the Sluggard

(Pro 6:6 KJV) Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise:

Here is the first reference of the “sluggard” (6102) in Proverbs. Solomon will return to this several times. The sluggard is lazy. Notice that the Bible is not politically correct or worried about people having proper self-esteem. The Bible does not lest courtesy and kindness trump honesty and openness about serious defects in our character. Laziness, as we will see, is a serious defect. It ruins lives and by extension it ruins society.
