“Slothful” (7423b) seems to be the opposite of “diligence” (2742a). One is listed as a mortal sin and the other is the path to success. Sometimes we forget that the same God who inspired this told us to take a Sabbath, a day of rest.
Taking a break from labor is not sloth. It is not lazy. It is righteous. We have forgotten this is well established in scripture. We take the words of Jesus,
(Mark 2:27 NAS77) And He was saying to them, "The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath.and we use them as an excuse for all kinds of activities on what is a day of rest.
We also forget that the Sabbath was to apply to servants, slaves and even the animals. So did you go out to a meal on your Sabbath? Did you do a little shopping? Did you do anything that required someone else to work?
So? Guilty as charged. I think my biggest violation is paying someone to fix and deliver a meal while I look forward to my afternoon nap. I am meddling but also confessing.
