Things That Keep Us From God's Blessings

There are certain things - personality traits/qualities - that we have to be careful of acquiring. One of the biggest ones - and one of the easiest ones - is laziness.

Laziness is something that we all deal with from time to time... We all have days where we would rather stay home and lay on the couch and watch television or just lay in bed all day. Laziness is something that is talked about quite a bit in the bible - especially in Proverbs. There are many texts in Proverbs which speak about the general undesirability of being a sluggard (6:6-11). Truth is, sluggishness and laziness is more than just a minor character flaw, it's something that can kill us spiritually.

Hebrews 6:11-12; "We desire that each one of you show the same diligence to the full assurance of hope until the end, that you do not become sluggish, but imitate those who through faith and patience inherit the promises."

In our life as a Christian, we have to be sure that we are diligent and active - not lazy. Let us guard ourselves from this dangerous quality.
