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.

Sloth Destorys

(Pro 18:9 KJV) He also that is slothful in his work is brother to him that is a great waster.

The sluggard is “slothful" (slack NASB) (7503). We are called to be diligent in our work and our responsibilities. As believers we are to be the best employees.

I have taken comfort in my sins being sins of omission. This deflates that comfort.

Laziness links us with those who destroy what is valuable. It’s results are not passive. The sins of omission are powerful. We underestimate the power of sloth. When we do not carry our weight we are allies of those who are actively seeking to do evil.
