A Verse to Share

Did you ever notice how laying around and being lazy doesn’t really feel that good after a while. Something that feels much better is having a purpose and staying busy. The bible mentions slothfulness so many times, it’s not easy to count. Staying busy has it’s reward.

Proverbs 13:4

The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing, while the soul of the diligent is richly supplied.
