LAZINESS WILL LEAD TO POVERTY  

​Proverbs 13:4 says , 

The soul of the sluggard (lazy) desires, and has nothing: but the soul of the diligent (persistent) shall be made fat (abundantly supplied). 

A lazy, irresponsible and undisciplined person is not one that does nothing, but one that does what he wants, when he wants. Eventually and gradually they become dependent on others for their living. 

 Laziness, irresponsibility and undisciplined comes about through bad habits, and bad habits have short-term benefits but long-term consequences.

“But we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you withdraw from every brother who walks disorderly and not according to the tradition which he received from us. For you yourselves know how you ought to follow us, for we were not disorderly among you; nor did we eat anyone’s bread free of charge, but worked with labor and toil night and day, that we might not be a burden to any of you, not because we do not have authority, but to make ourselves an example of how you should follow us. For even when we were with you, we commanded you this: If anyone will not work, neither shall he eat. For we hear that there are some who walk among you in a disorderly manner, not working at all, but are busybodies. Now those who are such we command and exhort through our Lord Jesus Christ that they work in quietness and eat their own bread. But as  for you, brethren, do not grow weary in doing good. And if anyone does not obey our word in this epistle, note that person and do not keep company with him, that he may be ashamed. Yet do not count him as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother. Now may the Lord of peace Himself give you peace always in every way. The Lord be with you all”.{2 Thessalonians 3:6‭-‬16}

In Matthew CH-25, the parable of the talents, the Lord took account of His servants. He called the servant that did nothing wicked and slothful (lazy). The Lord associates Laziness with Wickedness. The Wicked will always be punished. 

Remember the Lord is well pleased with servants and stewards who are faithful, diligent and wise.

Continuing to show consistency and diligence in your prayers, church attendance, tithings, in your work at home, school and on the the job, etc.

Blessed you are and blessed you will always be and to God be all the glory. Amen!
