(Proverbs 19:24 KJV) A slothful man hideth his hand in his bosom, and will not so much as bring it to his mouth again.
I wonder if this is an example of Biblical humor. It is hard for me to imagine someone too lazy to feed themselves although we have the concept of having slaves peel grapes for Roman aristocracy. What would be the modern equivalent. How many actions do we expect others to do for us? I guess one would be going out to eat so someone else can serve and clean up, but that is something you pay for. Around the house it might be just leaving your dishes on the counter and expect someone else to wash them. Some people always expect clean clothes to mysteriously appear in their drawers. I can think of a lot of illustrations but I can’t think of any that apply to me. I guess that is a common problem.
So? Lord, show me where I am too entitled for my own good.
