Proverbs 10:4 says, A lazy person will end up poor. But a hard worker will become rich. This verse is pretty self explanatory - if you work hard, you will be rewarded. We shouldn't judge people because we think they're being lazy, but we should be self-aware and honestly assess whether we are being lazy. There are at least 19 verses in Proverbs about laziness so it is an important topic. When we're lazy we're out of God's blessing because we're focusing on ourselves and not on serving others. Proverbs tells us that if you work hard you will become rich. I believe this means rich financially, but not in the multi-millionaire kind of way. I think it means becoming rich in your soul and spirit as well. When you help and serve others, you release happy chemicals in your brain which makes you happier. Serving is a spiritual discipline that brings you closer to God too.
