What can we understand by laziness? Laziness is an attitude that people express, some show that they are tired all the time, others show it by saying that they can never do anything, that same is always justified when there is something to do.
A lazy person is always in a kitchen and is always lying on a sofa waiting to be brought something to eat because neither food they like to look. They always want to be comfortable.
Slothfulness casteth into a deep sleep; and an idle soul shall suffer hunger.
The writer of this book called Solomon knew why he said these words about the lazy ones, he knew that these people wanted to get everything without moving a finger.
What will happen to a person who only thinks about sleeping and sleeping and does not look for a way to work to get their food? Well the truth is very difficult because everyone who is lazy every day will fall into a deep sleep, where you want to get up and look for food, but to the fact of always being sleepy they can not stand up, due to the great laziness that they have.
A slothful man hideth his hand in his bosom, and will not so much as bring it to his mouth again.
It is very true what the author of the book of proverbs says, talking about the lazy, these people can not hold a spoon in their hands and this is because they are so sleepy, that can not bring the spoon to thir mouth, because everything is heavy for them.
Consequences of laziness
“A slothful man hideth his hand in his bosom, and will not so much as bring it to his mouth again.”
The reason of laziness sometimes is a malfunction of the body organism, maybe a sickness which ought to be treated by a doctor. The body, the mind of a lazy person needs help to solve their problem. Solomon does not advice us about what to do to get out of such a bad situation.
People whose minds are affected by laziness, in general are not able to solve their problem by themselves. It does not matter to them to think about their lives, nor their bad situation.
“Slothfulness casts into a deep sleep; and an idle soul shall suffer hunger.”
A sickness need to be healed. The power of God acts in all our difficulties of soul and body, he is our saviour. Nothing passes unnoticed to our Lord.
For a children of God is good to believe in their Father and waits on him to solve all problems, laziness too.
To fall down in laziness can make us depressed and have hunger of God. He can helps us in case we feel distressed and ask help of Him. The Lord Jesus deliver us from all our troubles.
We are advised not fall into slouthfulnes, but be fervent and ready to every good work to help others and please the Lord. In the Bible we can find several advices to be diligent. The apostle Paul tells us in the letter to Romans 12:11:
“Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord”.
May the Lord help us to be fervent in spirit for serving Him.
AMEN THANK YOU JESUS FOR SAVING ME I LOVE YOU LORD JESUS CHRIST IN YOUR NAME I PRAY AMEN AND AMEN.
