Verse of the Day: Lazy People Don’t Work

November 2, 2008

25 Despite their desires, the lazy will come to ruin, for their hands refuse to work.

Proverbs 21:25 (NLT)

From the Nelson Study Bible:

The longing of the lazy man kills him; he is devoured by his own passions because he will not expend the energy to fulfill them. Verse 26 describes further the insatiable greed of the lazy person by contrasting it with the generosity of the righteous.
