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.

Laziness in the Eyes of the Beholder

(Pro 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 have a hard time with this illustration of laziness.  I just can’t picture it.  Maybe that is part of the point.  We can’t always see what others do to avoid work or carrying their share of the load.  There are people who can’t understand how you could not take your plate to the sink after dinner or make your bed in the morning.  For people that have no problem with that there are other areas of life where they expect others to tote their bale.  I know I often get accused of avoiding my share when it is simply a matter of different timing.

So?  What you think of as nagging might just be a reminder that other people have a different idea of being lazy than you do.  Only you can decide if you need to change.
