A lazy person only does
what to him is found pleasing.
Opportunities come and go
without any attempt at seizing.
* The Bible calls him a sluggard
who doesn’t think past today.
He makes a bed in poverty
thinking there’s no other way.
He often makes excuses
when he don’t get things done.
Blaming something, or someone
when he alone is the one.
Most times he feels entitled
often questioning, “Lord, why me?”
But when things don’t come easy
he’s content to take a knee.
Many are born into poverty without hope of escape;
and many are impoverished because they’re lazy. It’s become easier to depend on someone else to do the heavy lifting.
* 1 Timothy 5:8
But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.
