“The slothful hideth his hand in his bosom; it grieveth him to bring it again to his mouth.”
Slothfulness can consume us to the point that we neglect to even feed ourselves. There can come a point when even the most necessary things are seemingly not worth the effort.
“And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.”
Lack of food will only make us weary.
As much as our bodies need food to sustain us, our souls hunger even more for the Bread of Life.
“I am that bread of life.”
The Word of God is more necessary to the condition of our souls than anything else. Without Him we are nothing. Without spending time in the Word, our souls will hunger for Him.
“Neither have I gone back from the commandment of his lips; I have esteemed the words of his mouth more than my necessary food.”
It is vital that we read, study, and meditate upon the Word of God.
“Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word. With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments. Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee. Blessed art thou, O LORD: teach me thy statutes. With my lips have I declared all the judgments of thy mouth. I have rejoiced in the way of thy testimonies, as much as in all riches. I will meditate in thy precepts, and have respect unto thy ways. I will delight myself in thy statutes: I will not forget thy word.”
We must not allow slothfulness to interfere with our fellowship with the Lord.
