The Loafin' Laborer

Read Proverbs 12:24 TLB
A banker persuaded an old farmer to give his son a job for the summer. A week later the banker stopped by the farm and he asked, “How’s my son doing?”

“If he had one more hand,” said the farmer, “he’d need a third pocket to put it in.”

“An idle brain,” say the Germans, “is the devil’s workshop.” “An idle man,” say the Arabians, “is the devil’s playfellow.” And the Italians say, “By doing nothing we learn to do evil.”

The Living Bible says, “Work hard and become a leader; be lazy and never succeed.”

You can sit, soak and sour; or you can start, strive and soar. Which will you do?

Prayer: Keep us, heavenly Father, from disappointing our families, from dishonoring Thee, and from disgracing ourselves. Give us Thy wisdom for our minds and Thy skill for our hands and inspire us to work hard for Thee: through Christ, our Lord. Amen.
