Laziness Devotional: Monday, March 14

Pray that God would show you where you are lazy in your life, specifically spiritual laziness.

Read Proverbs 10:26: Like vinegar to the teeth and smoke to the eyes, so is the sluggard to those who send him.

Too much vinegar is sour and irritates the teeth.  Smoke to the eyes is unpleasant and hinders your vision thus straining progresses (moving forward).  The writer of the Proverb is suggesting that sending a lazy person to complete a task will frustrate and be an unpleasant experience for the sender.  Briefly examine your life, how do you know that you are not a “sluggard?”  Do you complete the tasks that are given to you in a timely manner? 

Do people trust that you will do the things that are given to you?  

Pray that God will help you to be diligent and faithful in the things that are asked of you.
