Laziness

Ecclesiastes 10:18 NASB
Through indolence the rafters sag,
and through slackness the house leaks.

Other translation

If a man is lazy, the rafters sag; if his hands are idle, the house leaks.

Devotional

Laziness is not just an attitude;
it is a lack of action.
It is a choice to let important matters suffer and neglect what is necessary.

The results of this laziness choice may not always be immediately evident.
However, with time, the accumulating signs of decay make the results of idleness very clear.

This is doubly true spiritually.
I wonder how many people have remained lost because God’s people were lazy about reaching out to the lost and broken.

Yes, laziness isn’t just an attitude;
it is a choice not to act!

Prayer Suggestions

▪︎ Ask God to stir in you a passion to do what is true and good and righteous.
▪︎ Ask God to convict your heart when you neglect what is important.
▪︎ Ask God to help you to discern the difference between laziness, and a genuine need for rest.
▪︎ Ask God to balance your life between your many responsibilities.
