“As the door turneth upon his hinges, so doth the slothful upon his bed.”
Tossing and turning in the middle of the night from restlessness is never enjoyable; especially when it continues through the day.
Slothfulness increases depression.
“Slothfulness casteth into a deep sleep; and an idle soul shall suffer hunger.”
A door moves back and forth without going anywhere – stationary, yet moveable. When we are consumed with slothfulness, we eventually lose our desire to do anything. This is neither productive nor wise.
Isolation to avoid reality is dangerous to our spiritual health.
“How long wilt thou sleep, O sluggard? when wilt thou arise out of thy sleep? Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep: So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth, and thy want as an armed man.”
When our slothfulness becomes so great that it takes over not only our physical but spiritual lives, we are in desperate need of a change.
“By much slothfulness the building decayeth; and through idleness of the hands the house droppeth through.”
Through the Word of God, we can begin to exchange our excuses of idleness for a life of serving and knowing Him.
“The soul of the sluggard desireth, and hath nothing: but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat.”
Turn from any slothful desires, and choose today to change your spiritual health by diligently seeking to know the Wisdom of the Word.
“Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart.”
“But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”
2 Samuel 23-24 | 1 Corinthians 13 | Proverbs 26
