This is the view off of my back porch of my back yard. It has been awhile since we have had this much snow. We cancelled everything at church today so I am doing something I haven’t done for awhile, I am staying in bed all day long. I have a bed that is like those in hospitals that lifts up in the back and my feet lift up as well, so I have it adjusted just right with my heating blanket on high, and I am going to read, write, pray, and work on my Scripture Memory. I will get up occasionally for a snack and a cup of coffee. It is kind of nice being a sluggard, a sloth, and a lazy poop for a day.
If you want to do an interesting Bible study, use your Bible search program on your computer, I-pad, or smart phone, and do a word search on sluggard and sloth. There are about 20 verses, mostly in the book of Proverbs that describe these very lazy people.
Proverbs 6:9-11 How long will you lie down, O sluggard? When will you arise from your sleep? A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest”— your poverty will come in like a vagabond and your need like an armed man.
Whooooeeeeeeeee, that sounds like me today 😀 We all are born lazy, and diligence is a character trait that God greatly admires, and one that we have to work hard at developing. The problem is that Sloths and Sluggards don’t like to work hard so they stay Sloths and Slugs unless they get some counsel and accountability in their life long enough to get them over the hump. Blessed is the person who had good parents who instilled the character trait of diligence in them as they grew up. Even though I had great parents who taught me well to love working hard, a day like today can entice me into another one, and then another, and before I realize it I am a lazy pig.
