Some people have elevated laziness to an art form. I heard about a fellow who designed a straw that was so long that he didn’t even have to lift his glass; he could leave it sitting on the coffee table in front of him and enjoy his favorite beverage and watch TV without lifting a finger.
The photo above shows the work of a road painter who couldn’t be bothered with moving some debris. He chose to take the easiest path to getting the job done, giving no thought to the quality of his work.
Proverbs 10:4 says, “Lazy hands make a man poor; but diligent hands bring wealth.” The apostles taught against laziness, saying that a person who refused to work should not expect to be given something to eat (2 Thessalonians 3:10).
Some people are spiritually lazy. They would rather not raise their voices to worship, lift their hands to serve or pick up their Bibles to read.
The Bible warns against spiritual laziness. Hebrews 6:12 says, “We do not want you to become lazy, but to imitate those who through faith and patience inherit what has been promised.”
OK, break’s over! Back to work!
