(Proverbs 26:14 KJV) As the door turneth upon his hinges, so doth the slothful upon his bed.
I really don’t have a clue to what Solomon is talking about here. That probably makes this a great verse on which to base a sermon because you can make it say whatever you want. In that spirit lets look at a door turning on its hinges. That could mean going through repetitive actions that take no thought. That would seem to be one characteristic of the “slothful” (sluggard NASB) (6102).
Being slothful means that you never put any energy into original thought or creative action. You are nothing but a consumer. You may work a job and pay our bills but you are content with letting others build society and make a difference.
So? A stretch? Maybe. But God has called us out to be salt and light. They make a difference. We are to make a difference.
