Nature of laziness.

According to Expositor’s Bible Commentary, Solomon refers to people who start projects but don’t have the energy to finish them. As a writer and crafter, I have multiple projects happening at once.   When I worked for a corporation, management gave me the projects and the due dates to complete them. But now, I set the pace for my work, and some days, I don’t feel like doing it.

Setting deadlines helps me finish projects. If I don’t give myself a timeline, I become a sluggard who doesn’t have the energy to finish. Something else always pops up.

“I have to say no to fun things,” I told the associate at Trader Joe’s. When she asked me about my day, we talked about the challenges of self-employment. No one’s holding me accountable for getting my work done but me. And sometimes, I’m a more demanding boss than others.

Finishing well and completing projects takes energy. Sluggards don’t pass the finish line because of their laziness. Don’t give up; keep going. One day at a time, you can finish any project you start.

Lord, thank You for giving us work to do. Help us complete the tasks You assign us well. Don’t let laziness stop us from doing the divine tasks at hand. Let our work glorify and honor You. IJNIP. Amen
