“He who is slothful in his work Is a brother to him who is a great destroyer.”

Proverbs 18:9

 

Do we remember that laziness is a sin? Are you a lazy Christian? It’s something we do not think much about in our daily life but the bible is very clear about it:

1 Timothy 5:8

“But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.”

Proverbs 14:23

“In all labor there is profit,
But idle chatter leads only to poverty.”

Proverbs 19:15

“Laziness casts one into a deep sleep,
And an idle person will suffer hunger.”

May God have mercy on us, sinners and give us the strength to fight sin in our lives.
