“The slothful man saith, There is a lion in the way; a lion is in the streets.”
When asked or told by his master to do something, a slothful man begins to come up with reasons as to why it should not or cannot be done.
Slothfulness brings excuses.
“The slothful man saith, There is a lion without, I shall be slain in the streets.”
Lions are usually in their own habitat, yet sometimes they begin to roam about where they have no home.
1 Peter 5:8-9
“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.”
“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”
The only Way to fight against our enemy is to use the Sword.
“For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”
It is not wise to continually make excuses about why we did not do something we know is right.
“Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.”
2 Samuel 21-22 | 1 Corinthians 12 | Proverbs 25
