Now it’s your turn

  

Are you Lazy?

   

Lazy
unwilling to work or use energy

Here’s what the Bible says about laziness

Go to the ant, you sluggard!
Consider her ways and be wise,
Proverbs 6:6

As vinegar to the teeth and smoke to the eyes,
So is the lazy man to those who send him.
Proverbs 10:26

The hand of the diligent will rule,
But the lazy man will be put to forced labor.
Proverbs 12:24

The lazy man does not roast what he took in hunting,
But diligence is man’s precious possession.
Proverbs 12:27

Watch and pray, 
lest you enter into temptation.
The spirit indeed is willing, 
but the flesh is weak.
Mark 14:38

Let him who stole steal no longer,
but rather let him labor,
working with his hands what is good,
that he may have something to give him who has need.
Ephesians 4:28

11 that you also aspire to lead a quiet life,
to mind your own business,
and to work with your own hands,
as we commanded you,
12 that you may walk properly toward those who are outside,
and that you may lack nothing.
1 Thessalonians 4:11-12

Now we exhort you, brethren,
warn those who are unruly,
comfort the fainthearted,
uphold the weak,
be patient with all.
1 Thessalonians 5:14

6 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.
7 For you yourselves know how you ought to follow us,
for we were not disorderly among you;
8 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,
2 Thessalonians 3:6-8

10 For even when we were with you,
we commanded you this:
If anyone will not work,
neither shall he eat.
11 For we hear that there are some who walk among you
in a disorderly manner,
not working at all,
but are busybodies.
12 Now those who are such we command
and exhort through our Lord Jesus Christ that
they work in quietness
and eat their own bread.
2 Thessalonians 3:10-12

that you do not become sluggish,
but imitate those who
through faith and patience
inherit the promises.
Hebrews 6:12
