Stop Looking for Excuses
The Slothful man saith, There is a lion without, I shall be slain in the streets
A lazy person will find any excuse not to work. The Bible speaks about a man who doesn’t provide for family being worse than an infidel. I believe God is serious that we work. Most of us have probably known someone who looked for reasons not to. We are, without doubt, supposed to provide for our families and work for our needs. As important as the work of hands is, there is work more important. We are also supposed to be about the Lord’s work. Do you look for excuses not to work in this area too? I’ve had people tell me they don’t invite lost/unchurched loved ones to church because they feel that is pressuring them. Really? Oh, slothful soul, at what cost is your excuse making?
