“How long wilt thou sleep, O sluggard? when wilt thou arise out of thy sleep?” Proverbs 6:9Text — Proverbs 6:9-11
It is good to have a positive attitude to work. Do not allow laziness to take over your life because it will destroy your dreams and desire for a successful life. Many children postpone what they can do today till tomorrow or a later day. The opportunity of the later day may not come, it may also sometimes not be convenient. Be diligent with your studies, house chores, Daily Bible Reading and other assignments given to you. The ant though a very tiny creature, is very hardworking and does not need to be guided/ reminded every time. Be like the ant – diligent, focused and tireless so that you can make impact on your life and the future generation.
Laziness or procrastination (postponing what you can do today/now till a later day/time), is a thief of time. It robs you of making progress and limits your achievements. You must rise up, shake off laziness and get going. There is a lot for you to achieve and you will make it if you are committed to it. Now is the time to “wake up”.
Prayer for today
Father, please, help me to shun laziness and embrace hard work so that I can have good success.
