THE DANGER OF IDLENESS
By DIGC06 November 2020
A lazy person has no deadline and where there is no deadline, there is no headline.
SCRIPTURE: By much slothfulness the building decayeth; and through idleness of the hands the house droppeth through. Ecclesiastes10:18
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Idleness equals decadence.
It has been established that idleness is a deadly enemy of destiny. A lazy person cannot amount to anything reasonable in life. The indolent cannot fulfil destiny.
Today, we shall look at the dangers of idleness.
- Indolence is a door way to bondage
Idleness establishes the life of an idle person in perpetual bondage. Captivity will always lurk around the idle person. The termination of captivity is not for the idle. Victory belongs only to the strong; the audacious are always victorious. Victory belongs to the fighter and not to the indolent person.
- Idleness equals decadence (Eccl. 10:18).
An idle life degenerates in the same way an idle tyre goes flat. An idle life degenerates just the same way an idle or unoccupied house degenerates. Idleness equals decadence.
- Idleness paralyzes potential (Eccl. 10:18).
A man of great potential will become useless in a short time because of the refusal to do anything. He is not profitable to himself; he is not profitable to God and he is not profitable to his nation.
On the other hand, active people are smart people. The more active a person is, the smarter he becomes. A busy person knows how to meet deadlines and get a job done.
It is very important to know this: A lazy person has no deadline and where there is no deadline, there is no headline.
Beloved, always engage your hand in something worthwhile and profitable.
Remember this: Idleness equals decadence.
- Refuse to attract bondage and decadence through idleness
- Engage your hands profitably.
PRAYER: O Lord, I refuse to attract bondage and decadence into my life through idleness. I receive the grace to accept responsibility, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
