What Bible says about Laziness?

In-activeness in any action makes a person Lazy. A Lazy man will never do his work on time, sincerely and accurate. In the world filled with competition, laziness will not help a man to survive happily. There are people who are lazy at times and there are people who are lazy all the time. The Bible says, in Proverbs 20:4, “The sluggard does not plough in the autumn; he will seek at harvest and have nothing”. If you do not work at the right time, you cannot expect anything good in your future.

Do not expect a profit from someone else’s work, if you had not worked for it. You should be able to stay away from your laziness and work for your food. As we read, in 2 Thessalonians 3:10, “If anyone is not willing to work, let him not eat”, you must work for your needs. Laziness makes a person weak, incapable, and unpunctual. Postponing your work, late to office, skipping your meals due to lack of time are good examples of laziness. Proper time management will help you to jump out of your laziness.

Through the Bible, God has asked the lazy man to learn a lesson from Proverbs 6:6-11, “Go to the ant, O sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise. Without having any chief, officer, or ruler, she prepares her bread in summer and gathers her food in harvest”. If an ant can be so much wise and active, why can’t we humans throw our laziness away? Anything put into practice, becomes our habit. In the same way, when we practice to manage our time, we can definitely overcome laziness.

The Bible says, in Deuteronomy 30:9, “The Lord your God will make you most prosperous in all the work of your hands”. Ask God for his support and strength to overcome your laziness and start working. You will surely rejoice in joy and will be crowned with prosperity.

Bible Verse about Hard Work:

Proverbs 13:4

“A sluggard’s appetite is never filled, but the desires of the diligent are fully satisfied.”


If you put in your efforts and work hard, you will surely be satisfied with all what you do and you will be blessed abundantly throughout your life. But if you are lazy and effortless, then you will only receive a pocket size blessing, even though you desire more.

Bible Verse about being Wise:

Proverbs 6:6-8

“Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise! It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest.”


The ant is a very small insect but, the lesson it teaches has great value. There are people who cannot do their job, unless someone pushes them to do it. We too sometimes, forget to think wisely and act individually. We always depend or trouble others to get our simple tasks done. So from today, let’s throw away all our laziness and think about the ways on how to act wisely and get the job done.
