REASONS WE LACK EXCELLENCE

9.      Laziness:

Proverbs 6:9  How long will you lie down, O sluggard? When
will you arise from your sleep?

10  “A little sleep, a little slumber, A
little folding of the hands to rest”–

11  And your poverty will come in like a vagabond,
And your need like an armed man.

 

 

Proverbs 13:4  The soul of the sluggard craves and gets
nothing, But the soul of the diligent is made fat.

 

10.      Procrastination:

 

Procrastination says, “I’ll do it later.”

 

…improve
my skills…get wisdom…try harder…refine my product….and a host of other       good intentions.

 

This is really a sluggard talking.  A procrastinator is a lazy person and they
always have an excuse.

Proverbs 15:19  The
way of the sluggard is blocked with thorns, but the path of the upright is a
highway.  (NIV)

 

Proverbs 22: 13  The sluggard
says, “There is a lion outside; I shall be slain in the streets!”
