Lord your great grace and mercy has kept us and continues to give us that ability to move forward in doing what’s right and moving away from the madness of this world. We honor you for your strength, wisdom and power in keeping us and our families safe and for providing our physical, mental, spiritual and financial needs. In the name of Jesus we thank you and bless your Holy Name!
The message Bible has some harsh things to say about laziness. Proverbs 6:6-11 strongly states: You lazy fool, look at an ant. Watch it closely; let it teach you a thing or two. Nobody has to tell it what to do. All summer it stores up food; at harvest it stockpiles provisions. So how long are you going to laze around doing nothing? How long before you get out of bed? A nap here, a nap there, a day off here, a day off there, sit back, take it easy—do you know what comes next, Just this: You can look forward to a dirt-poor life, poverty your permanent houseguest! Wow! The Message Bible version is a version that explains the Bible the way Modern Day People talk, without changing the original meaning. Brothers and sisters, laziness devastates our wellbeing. Too much rest leads to poverty!
