POTTERS TOUCH DEVOTIONAL.
TUESDAY, 11TH SEPTEMBER 2018.
TODAY’S DEVOTION. LAZINESS, WEALTH STOPPER!
TODAY’S SCRIPTURE. “Love not sleep, lest thou come to poverty; open thine eyes, and thou shalt be satisfied with bread.” (Proverbs 20:13 KJV)
God has great plans to bless and prosper you but you must not be lazy! The word of God says you must not love “sleep”, yes sleep! Although the same Bible says,
“It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep.” (Psalm 127:2 KJV)
The kind of sleep God approves of is a well deserved rest after work. God disapproves totally the sleep of laziness or idleness.
The Message Bible translation of our opening scripture says,
” Don’t be too fond of sleep; you’ll end up in the poorhouse. Wake up and get up; then there’ll be food on the table.” (Proverbs 20:13 MSG)
Being fond of sleep has to do with imbibing a habit of sleeping during work time.This habit is demonic because it will lead you to poverty. Most poor people became poor as a result of either lazy thinking, lazy manner of working or acting in a lazy manner.
“Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise: Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler, Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest. How long wilt thou sleep, O sluggard? when wilt thou arise out of thy sleep? Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep: So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth, and thy want as an armed man.” (Proverbs 6:6-11 KJV)
Most times, poverty is the product of laziness,life will be hard if you don’t work hard!
