To Live with no Motivation
To live with no motivation or planning is not God’s desire.
By much slothfulness the building decays; and through idleness of the hands the roof drops through.
Proverbs 6:6-11 says,
“Go to the ant, O sluggard;
consider her ways, and be wise.
Without having any chief,
officer, or ruler,
she prepares her bread in summer
and gathers her food in harvest.
How long will you lie there, O sluggard?
When will you arise from your sleep?
A little sleep, a little slumber,
a little folding of the hands to rest,
and poverty will come upon you like a robber,
and want like an armed man.”
Laziness causes a person to neglect work and misses the window of opportunity. Summer is the preparation time for winter, and we dare not wile it away. Failure to plan ahead will result in “poverty” and “want.”
Proverbs 21:5 The plans of a hard-working person lead to prosperity,
but everyone who is always in a hurry ends up in poverty.
