Why We Shouldn't Be Lazy - See The Cost Of Laziness


We have all been lazy at one point in our lives, and we all know that is when we were very unproductive, and because of un-productiveness, there is no fruit to show for it. The bible even mentions that a lazy person can take food in his hand but fail to put it in his mouth, now if that statement is loaded like that, it should sound a warning to us. Here a few snippets in scripture to show us the cost of laziness, may be this can help someone in all their spheres of life.
Hebrews 6:12
so that you will not be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises. 1 ‪#‎Lazy‬ - Sluggish Don't Inherit God's Promises
Proverbs 22:13
The sluggard says, "There is a lion outside; I will be killed in the streets!"
2 #Lazy - Sluggish won't risk or go out and work because of fear
Proverbs 13:4
The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing, But the soul of the diligent is made fat. 3 #Lazy - Sluggard get nothing even when they crave for it
Proverbs 20:4
The sluggard does not plow after the autumn, So he begs during the harvest and has nothing. 4 #Lazy - Sluggard won't plow, so he turns into a BEGGAR (this isn't our portion as Christians - we need to plow (work))
2 Thessalonians 3:10
For even when we were with you, we used to give you this order: if anyone is not willing to work, then he is not to eat, either. 5 #Lazy - Not willing to work, WON'T EAT
Matthew 25:26-30
"But his master answered and said to him, 'You wicked, lazy slave, you knew that I reap where I did not sow and gather where I scattered no seed.
6 #Lazy - if you sow laziness, you will reap nothing
There are many more scriptures on this, but this should be an eye opener, It is mentioned in Proverbs 6:6-8
Go to the ant, O sluggard, Observe her ways and be wise,
The only way to help your self is by Going to See how those who work do it (Ants Have No Leaders But They Work), for in it you can be inspired and motivated to come out of your own slump.
‪#‎DontBeLazy‬ - it is very expensive to maintain such a life style
