Know it alls have the darkest future. 10.18.11

Lazy people take food in their hand but don’t even lift it to their mouth. Lazy people consider themselves smarter than seven wise counselors. (Proverbs 26:15, 16 NLT)

The lazy fool is permanently helpless not soley because he lacks a work ethic, but more importantly because he thinks he knows it all. A lazy man who is teachable at least has hope if he can realize the problem while working to overcome it, but the fool who thinks he knows it all is the one really in trouble…for no amount of wise guidance can help him. This man’s life is governed by an inaccurate view of God and His sovereign design for a man’s life. Action. My sons, laziness and foolishness begin first in the mind, springing up from improper thinking and eventually gives way to the spoiled fruit of poor actions in life. Maintain a teachable humble spirit always, taking responsibility for your thought life…seeking to counteract and overcome the lazy, foolish tendencies we all share in life.
