Proverbs 19:15 says, "Laziness casts into a deep sleep, and an idle man will suffer hunger." I am not suffering physical hunger... far from it. BUT, what I am realizing is that I am still hungering. I'm hungering emotionally and spiritually. It is impossible for a true Believer to knowingly live in sin and feel fulfilled.
Lately I've been trying to memorize 2 Peter 1:2-8. This is a reflection of what it takes to live a fruitful and useful life, and it doesn't leave room for mental or physical laziness:
"Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. Seeing that his divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness through the true knowledge of Him who called us according to His own glory and excellence. For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises so that by them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust. Now for this very reason also, applying all diligence, in your faith supply moral excellence, and in your moral excellence, knowledge, and in your knowledge, self control, and in your self control, perseverance, and in your perseverance, godliness, and in your godliness, brotherly kindness, and in your brotherly kindness, love. For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they render you neither useless nor unfruitful in the true knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ."
Time to make some changes!
