Daily Verse: “Whoever is slack in his work is a brother to him who destroys.” Prov. 19:9

Destructive laziness.

People who intentionally cause destruction and lazy people get classified together in today’s verse.  Slack workers don’t do the best job and may make things that fall apart, causing destruction.  Lazy people destroy indirectly but still cause destruction.

When we first moved into our home, it had a beautiful floor made of wood and laminate.  Unfortunately, whoever installed the floor didn’t do a good job; they installed the black padding underneath upside down.  As a result, black marks appeared on the floor any time water spilled on the floor, like from our dishwasher.  Water from our shoes and around the doors caused the floor to blacken.  Eventually, we had to replace the entire floor because someone didn’t do the job correctly.

Laziness destroys.  God tells us to work as if unto Him.  Whatever task lies before us, we should do it to the best of our ability, honoring the Lord with our efforts.

Don’t link yourself with people who destroy.  Work hard and do your best.  God will bless your efforts.

Lord, forgive our laziness.  Help us do whatever task You assign us to the best of our ability.  Let our work honor You as we try to serve You well.  IJNIP. Amen
