Proverbs 10:4, CEV Laziness leads to poverty; hard work makes you rich.

Proverbs 21:5, NLT Good planning and hard work lead to prosperity, but hasty shortcuts lead to poverty.

Proverbs 13:4, NKJV The soul of a lazy man desires, and has nothing; But the soul of the diligent shall be made rich.

Proverbs 20:4, NLT Those too lazy to plow in the right season will have no food at the harvest.

Proverbs 6:6-11, NIV Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise! It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest. How long will you lie there, you sluggard? When will you get up from your sleep? A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest- and poverty will come on you like a thief and scarcity like an armed man.


As we can see from the above scriptures, The Bible reminds us again and again that laziness leads to poverty. Laziness also has many other disadvantages besides poverty. The Bible strongly discourages laziness and slothfulness because being lazy is also bad for our soul and well being. Thus, Laziness can easily lead to depression. Laziness also leads to failure – When we are lazy, we fail to plan properly and try to take shortcuts. Laziness does not bring glory to God!

On the other hand, The Bible strongly encourages hard work, discipline, diligence, perseverance and excellence.

Like the ant, we should be willing to work hard and work smart by God’s grace, without waiting for anyone to motivate us.

When we work hard, we are honoring and glorifying God, and God will reward our diligence with favor and blessings.

*Please note that laziness is not the only reason people experience povertyabsolutely not! We can not conclude that someone is lazy just because they are poor – that would be very wrong. Nevertheless, we must not ignore the pitfalls of laziness – which include poverty, failure and depression. So help us God, Amen.
