Proverbs 13:4 says, No matter how much a lazy person may want something, he will never get it. A hard worker will get everything he wants. We weren't designed to sit around and do nothing all day. (Note: we weren't designed to work ourselves to the point of exhaustion either).
There are several verses in Proverbs about laziness. Here are a couple of them:
Hard workers will become leaders. But those who are lazy will be slaves.
Lazy hands will make you poor; hard-working hands will make you rich.
Lazy people sleep a lot. Idle people will go hungry.
The principle in all these verses is that you have to work for the things that you want, whether that is material things, good grades, promotion at work, etc. Laziness shows a lack of care or concern about something. We should do everything as though we are serving God, not people. We definitely shouldn't be lazy about serving God. Have you been lazy about certain things? What can you do to resolve this?
