On The Bright Side – Mary Howell -102512

Filed under: Mary Howell — Freddie Keel @ 6:08 am


The hand of the diligent shall bear rules but the slothful shall be under tribute. Proverbs 12:24.


We all have things that irritate us!  These are usually called pet peeves.  If I do have  a pet peeve, it would be laziness.


When I was growing up, there was no room in my life to be lazy.  Our family had a set schedule for everything for daily living.  We got up at a certain time and we went to bed at a certain time to make the next day’s activities go smoother.  We had breakfast, dressed for the day, straightened up the house, and  washed the dishes before we went to school or to work.


It is very irritating to me when folks around me fail to be on time or have any regards for other people’s time.  Some folks stay up late until the wee hours of the morning and then they don’t want to go to work or fulfill their duties.


When a family does not have a routine for daily activities, chaos occurs. No one knows what time it is or where they are supposed to be at a certain hour.  Some people are too lazy to get up or put on their clothes or they want to lay in bed until noon time and then they waste the morning which puts them behind the rest of the day.


The Bible speaks about slothfulness and tells us to not be slothful.  The book of Proverbs reminds us that if we are too lazy to work then we don’t have a right to eat or ask God to bless our laziness.  Some people are too lazy to read their Bible or too lazy to go to church, or too lazy to do anything for others or to be a friend.


Lazy people make poor employees.  They just slide by and do the least amount of work possible. They not only waste their employer’s money, they make it rough for their co-workers who have to pitch in and do their uncompleted work for them.


We can all be thankful that God put everything on a schedule. There is time for everything.


Life would be happier when we live every day on the bright side and the right time.
