Laziness

Proverbs 6:6-8      GO TO THE ANT, O SLUGGARD; AND SEE, AND BE COMPETITIVELY ZEALOUS OF HIS WAYS, AND BECOME WISER THAN HE.
    FOR WHEREAS HE HAS NO CULTIVATED/FARMED LAND, NOR ANY ONE TO COMPEL HIM, AND IS UNDER NO MASTER,
    HE PREPARES FOOD FOR HIMSELF IN THE SUMMER, AND LAYS BY ABUNDANT STORE IN HARVEST. OR GO TO THE BEE, AND LEARN HOW DILIGENT SHE IS, AND HOW EARNESTLY SHE IS ENGAGED IN HER WORK; WHOSE LABOURS KINGS AND PRIVATE MEN USE FOR HEALTH, AND SHE IS DESIRED AND RESPECTED BY ALL: THOUGH WEAK IN BODY, SHE IS ADVANCED BY HONOURING WISDOM.

Proverbs 10:4-5      POVERTY BRINGS A MAN LOW: BUT THE HANDS OF THE DILIGENT ENRICH. A SON WHO IS INSTRUCTED/CORRECTED SHALL BE WISE, AND SHALL USE THE FOOL FOR A SERVANT.
    A WISE SON IS SAVED FROM HEAT: BUT A LAWLESS SON IS BLIGHTED OF THE WINDS IN HARVEST.

Proverbs 12:11      HE THAT TILLS HIS OWN LAND SHALL BE SATISFIED WITH BREAD; BUT THEY THAT PURSUE VANITIES ARE VOID OF UNDERSTANDING. HE THAT ENJOYS HIMSELF IN BANQUETS OF WINE, SHALL LEAVE DISHONOUR IN HIS OWN STRONGHOLDS.

Proverbs 12:24      THE HAND OF CHOSEN MEN SHALL EASILY OBTAIN RULE; BUT THE DECEITFUL SHALL BE FOR A PREY.

Proverbs 13:4      EVERY SLOTHFUL MAN DESIRES, BUT THE HANDS OF THE ACTIVE ARE DILIGENT.

Proverbs 13:23      THE RIGHTEOUS SHALL SPEND MANY YEARS IN WEALTH: BUT THE UNRIGHTEOUS SHALL PERISH SUDDENLY.

Proverbs 15:19      THE WAYS OF SLUGGARDS ARE STREWN WITH THORNS; BUT THOSE OF THE DILIGENT ARE MADE SMOOTH.

Proverbs 24:30-34      A FOOLISH MAN IS LIKE A FARM, AND A SENSELESS MAN IS LIKE A VINEYARD.
    IF YOU LET HIM ALONE, HE WILL ALTOGETHER REMAIN BARREN AND COVERED WITH WEEDS; AND HE BECOMES DESTITUTE, AND HIS STONE WALLS ARE BROKEN DOWN.
    AFTERWARDS I REFLECTED, I LOOKED THAT I MIGHT RECEIVE INSTRUCTION.
    THE SLUGGARD SAYS, “I SLUMBER A LITTLE, AND I SLEEP A LITTLE, AND FOR A LITTLE WHILE I FOLD MY ARMS ACROSS MY CHEST.”
    BUT IF YOU DO THIS, YOUR POVERTY WILL COME SPEEDILY; AND YOUR WANT LIKE A SWIFT COURIER.

Proverbs 27:23      THOROUGHLY KNOW THE NUMBER OF YOUR FLOCK, AND YOU WILL PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR HERDS.

Proverbs 28:19      HE THAT TILLS HIS OWN LAND SHALL BE SATISFIED WITH BREAD: BUT HE THAT FOLLOWS IDLENESS SHALL HAVE PLENTY OF POVERTY.

Ecclesiastes 5:18-19      BEHOLD, I HAVE SEEN GOOD, THAT IT IS A FINE THING FOR A MAN TO EAT AND TO DRINK, AND TO SEE GOOD IN ALL HIS LABOUR IN WHICH HE MAY LABOUR UNDER THE SUN, ALL THE NUMBER OF THE DAYS OF HIS LIFE WHICH THEOS (The Alpha & Omega) HAS GIVEN TO HIM: FOR IT IS HIS PORTION.
    YES, AND AS FOR EVERY MAN TO WHOM THEOS HAS GIVEN WEALTH AND POSSESSIONS, AND HAS GIVEN HIM POWER TO EAT THEREOF, AND TO RECEIVE HIS PORTION, AND TO REJOICE IN HIS LABOUR; THIS IS THE GIFT OF THEOS.

Sirach 25:3      IF YOU HAVE GATHERED NOTHING IN YOUR YOUTH, HOW CAN YOU FIND ANY THING IN YOUR AGE?

Matthew 25:1-12      "THEN THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN WILL BE COMPARABLE TO TEN VIRGINS, WHO TOOK THEIR LAMPS AND WENT OUT TO MEET THE BRIDEGROOM.
    FIVE OF THEM WERE FOOLISH, AND FIVE WERE WISE.
    FOR WHEN THE FOOLISH TOOK THEIR LAMPS, THEY TOOK NO OIL WITH THEM,
    BUT THE WISE TOOK OIL IN FLASKS ALONG WITH THEIR LAMPS.
    NOW WHILE THE BRIDEGROOM WAS DELAYING, THEY ALL GOT DROWSY AND began TO SLEEP.
    BUT AT MIDNIGHT THERE WAS A SHOUT, 'BEHOLD, THE BRIDEGROOM! COME OUT TO MEET him!'
    THEN ALL THOSE VIRGINS ROSE AND TRIMMED THEIR LAMPS.
    THE FOOLISH SAID TO THE WISE, 'GIVE US SOME OF YOUR OIL, FOR OUR LAMPS ARE GOING OUT.'
    BUT THE WISE ANSWERED, 'NO, THERE WILL NOT BE ENOUGH FOR US AND YOU; GO INSTEAD TO THE DEALERS AND BUY FOR YOURSELVES.'
    AND WHILE THEY WERE GOING AWAY TO MAKE THE PURCHASE, THE BRIDEGROOM CAME, AND THOSE WHO WERE READY WENT IN WITH HIM TO THE WEDDING; AND THE DOOR WAS SHUT.
    LATER THE OTHER VIRGINS ALSO CAME, SAYING, 'LORD, LORD, OPEN UP FOR US.'
    BUT HE ANSWERED, 'I TELL YOU THE TRUTH, I DO NOT KNOW YOU.'

Romans 12:11      NOT LAGGING BEHIND IN DILIGENCE, FERVENT IN SPIRIT, SERVING THE LORD;

Ephesians 4:28      HE WHO STEALS MUST STEAL NO LONGER; BUT RATHER HE MUST LABOUR, PERFORMING WITH HIS OWN HANDS WHAT IS GOOD, SO THAT HE WILL HAVE something TO SHARE WITH ONE WHO HAS NEED.

1 Thessalonians 4:11-12      AND TO MAKE IT YOUR AMBITION TO LEAD A QUIET LIFE AND ATTEND TO YOUR OWN AND WORK WITH YOUR HANDS, JUST AS WE COMMANDED YOU,
    SO THAT YOU WILL BEHAVE PROPERLY TOWARD OUTSIDERS AND NOT BE IN ANY NEED.

2 Thessalonians 3:10-12      FOR EVEN WHEN WE WERE WITH YOU, WE USED TO GIVE YOU THIS ORDER: IF ANYONE IS NOT WILLING TO WORK, THEN HE IS NOT TO EAT, EITHER.
    FOR WE HEAR THAT SOME AMONG YOU ARE LEADING AN UNDISCIPLINED LIFE, DOING NO WORK AT ALL, BUT ACTING LIKE BUSYBODIES.
    NOW SUCH PERSONS WE COMMAND AND ADVISE IN THE LORD JESUS, THE CHRIST, TO WORK IN QUIET FASHION AND EAT THEIR OWN BREAD.

2 Timothy 2:6      THE HARD-WORKING FARMER SHOULD BE THE FIRST TO RECEIVE HIS SHARE OF THE CROPS.
