10 Days of Proverbs

Proverbs 19:11
A man’s discretion makes him slow to anger,
And it is his glory to overlook a transgression.

Day 4: Proverbs 6: Get up, you lazy one
Have we ever thought of ourselves as lazy? Maybe there are just a few areas of our lives that we may approach with a lazy attitude. For example, getting physically fit to help you have a healthy temple. (See 1 Corinthians 6:19.) Or maybe our study of God’s Word and spending time in prayer is not quite what it needs to be. (See Ezra 7:10.) Let us get up and strive to actively shake off the laziness that keeps us from the abundant life God intended us to have. (See John 10:10.)
