Daily Verse: “Slothfulness casts into a deep sleep, and an idle person will suffer hunger.” Prov. 19:15

Wasted time.

Signifying lethargy, slothfulness wastes time and loses money. In Hebrew, the word means complete inactivity. Instead of providing for themselves and their family, slothful people sleep.

Laziness drives me crazy. Working in one of my larger stores during my retail days, I had the entire department torn apart. Merchandise stacked around fixtures, waiting for placement, described the work ahead of me.

“I hate it when there’s nothing to do,” the young associate working the department said to me.

My mind raged; you can’t see one thing to do in this merchandise nightmare. She stood at the register the entire time, not once offering to help me—one of my most memorable ten-hour days, working with a slothful person who had no motivation.

Laziness doesn’t provide anything for anyone, but hard work has many rewards and fulfills your basic needs.

Lord, forgive us for our laziness. Thank You for the ability to work and the provision that comes from it. Motivate us to work hard, reaping the wards from it as we provide for ourselves and our families. IJNIP. Amen
