Leadership Promises - Guarding Against The Sluggard

"The lazy man will not plow because of winter; He will beg during harvest and have nothing." Proverbs 20:4

King Solomon had plenty to say about the "sluggard," or the habitually lazy person.

The sluggard makes only one commitment: to his leisure. He'll try any excuse to shy away from honest labor.

The sluggard in the physical sense does nothing for the world around him; he leaves it unchanged, except for pillaging some of its resources.

The sluggard in the spiritual sense is little different; he leaves the world no better than he found it, and perhaps a little poorer.

When leaders become lazy and lose their diligence in doing good for God, they become spiritual sluggards and worthless to the Kingdom.

Wise leaders know their time is limited. They know they have no way to retrieve misused or wasted time. Jesus stressed this when He said, "I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work" (John 9:4).

Leaders in the Body of Christ must remain diligent in doing good and in encouraging others to do likewise.
The Maxwell Leadership Bible. Good day!
