Topic : THE DANGER OF SLOTHFULNESS
Text : Proverbs 18: 1-10
KJV:He also that is slothful in his work is brother to him that is a great waster. Proverbs 18;9
Slothfulness is defined as disinclination to work, apathy or inactivity in the practise of a virtue. Inactivity in the place of work. From our passage a slothful person is a brother to a great waster, not just a waster, A GREAT WASTER. It means lack of right attitude to work leads to great waste. Slothfulness is synonymous to great wastage, another point worthy of note in our text is embedded in the phrase ‘his work’.
‘His work’: many people seem not to know their work, this is a problem that must be solved. You must find a work to do, don’t wait to be employed, there are opportunities around you, observe very closely there is something you can do. I discovered long ago that everyman’s blessing is not far from him, it is not in abroad but within. Ask yourself these questions: what can l do without supervision? what do l enjoying doing? where lies my strength and interest? your answer to these questions is your work. Develop yourself in that area, seek more knowledge about it, give it all passion and commitment. When you do this, surely you’re on your way to the top.
For the employed, when you are good at your desk you will command people’s attention, both customers and the management, when you are deprived of promotion some people will definitely fight for you. After reading proverbs 22:27 you will agreed that a slothful man is a brother to a great waster, ‘ KJV:Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men.’ Proverbs 22:27. slothfulness can reduce a man to nothing, it deprives one of dignity, it dumps one among mean men. It’s a catalyst that thwarts a man’s destiny.
* If you do nothing you come to nothing.
* Slothfulness is a catalyst that thwarts man’s destiny.
* Your destiny is not in abroad but within you.
* Discovering yourself is discovering your assignment (work).
* Slothfulness is synonymous to wastage.
As you get committed to your work this week, the LORD will bless all that you do.
* henceforth, I desist from every act of slothfulness.
* I receive grace to be diligent at my work.
* LORD crown my effort with success in Jesus mighty name.
