The opening paragraph of this post will make you want to keep reading. “Anyone can recognize the tragedy of a lazy man. Even normal responsibilities overwhelm him. He is paralyzed by absurd fears (Proverbs 22:13). He cannot provide for himself, or anyone else (Proverbs 20:4). Just about anything is too hard for him (Proverbs 19:24).
