One who is slack in his work is brother to one who destroys.
– Proverbs 18:9 (NIV)

Have you ever considered laziness as a form of vandalism? It destroys our time (which can’t be regained) while it allows small tasks to turn into major projects that need more resources than we planned for. This can be a major challenge to a culture who values comfort above other things, but being good stewards of our time and resources makes the statement that every moment belongs to God and we will give an account for how we spend that time.
