Daily Verse: “Like vinegar to the teeth and smoke to the eyes, so is the sluggard to those who send him.” Prov. 10:26

Hindrance to progress.

Sending someone incapable of doing the job tastes like vinegar in the mouth to the receiver. When you hire someone to do a job, you expect them to do it.

One experience I will never forget happened over fifteen years ago. A friend hired roofers that never did the work and, unfortunately, paid them first. Driving to their office together and finding the vacant space broke my heart.

Sluggards do the least amount of work for the most significant reward; they prove themselves untrustworthy. 

Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men,” Colossians 3:23

Following Jesus means doing our best, working for the Lord, not man. Sluggards produce a sour taste. Hearts in tune with Christ produce sweet fruit.

Lord, forgive us for ever producing a sour taste because of our actions. Help us tune our hearts to Yours, producing sweet fruit for the world around us. IJNIP. Amen
