(Proverbs 26:15 KJV) The slothful hideth his hand in his bosom; it grieveth him to bring it again to his mouth.
How we hate the picture of the “sluggard” (6102). It is not politically correct to use such a term, but then the Bible has never been PC. Recently one of the kids at school called this group “bums.” I have not heard that term in a long time. After jokingly giving her a hard time about her choice of words, I had to agree with her.
Some people are lazy. Some people are shiftless. They are quite happy to live off the labor of others, have others pick up after them, contribute nothing and take whatever they can. In a word, they are “sluggards,” or, as the KJV states it, “slothful” with full apologies to the real sloths.
I think it is inferred that sluggards are not pleasing to God.
So? Don’t be a sluggard.
