YOU HAVE NOT BEEN SET FREE to be lazy! Laziness, idleness, whatever you want to call it is undisciplined slackness. There’s an old adage: “Idle hands are the devil’s workshop.” Guess what happens when a person is lazy? They have a tendency to fill their time with gossip and be a busy body, craving everyone’s business like an addict. They have a tendency to fill their time with fruitless, useless television. They have a tendency to seek to please their flesh by shopping or finding needless ways to spend money. “For even when we were with you, we commanded you this: If anyone will not work, neither shall he eat. For we hear that there are some who walk among you in a disorderly manner, not working at all, but are busybodies.” II Thessalonians 3:10-11.
It’s the fleshly nature that rejects work. We were created to work. I’m not talking about going out and getting a job, a stay-at-home mom works hard. There’s always something to be done. What are you filing your hours with? Here’s some suggestion: study the Word of God and teach a Bible or book study, start a garden, learn to crochet and make things for your neighbors, get a part time job, clean others houses. Need more suggestions? Ask a close friend. The Proverbs 31 woman works hard to take care of her family. Go read about her. Turn off the tv, get off your phone and start doing something productive! #runyourrace
