Investing all my energy [and time] to complete the job assigned to me. – Character First!
What does laziness mean? I often think of a sloth sleeping, a cartoon character reclining in a pool chair – when he should be working – or maybe the grasshopper, which is known for his lazy behaviour. We’re presently studying diligence at school, and it’s really helping me see ways that I am lazy.
If you know me, you are probably chuckling in disbelief right about now. “Jessica? Lazy? Ha!” But it can be true in so many areas that I didn’t even realize. I’ve learnt that laziness isn’t merely a term, but a device Satan uses to stop us from doing God’s work. While it looks different to everybody, I reckon that laziness is something, to a degree, everybody struggles with.
For me, laziness is not getting out of bed when my alarm clock rings in the morning.
Laziness is procrastinating jobs.
Laziness – or slothfulness – is not being bothered to go the whole way, even in minuscule matters.
Laziness is a big problem for me.
Other’s might not think that laziness is something that I, of all people, need to worry about, but honestly, it’s not about whether I seem to do the right thing diligently, its whether God can call me diligent and a solider against the enemy called laziness.
What does laziness look like to you?
