As a door swings back and forth on it's hinges, so the lazy person turns over in bed. Lazy people take food in their hand but don't even lift it to their mouths.
Squeak! Squeak! Squeak! Have you ever heard a door sqqquueeeaaakkk as it swings back and forth? This is how a lazy person is—laying in bed and turning from side to side, getting nothing done.
If you have chores to do at home, don't 'squeak' and moan and wonder if someone else will do them for you. Work at them until they are done—and done well. And, laying around is good sometimes, and God gave us hours to sleep, but when it's time to get up, Get up! Colossians 3:23 says “Do everything like you're working for the Lord.” He's in charge of you and He loves you—do your best for Him!
Dear Lord, please help me not be lazy. Please teach me to work hard and to be responsible. In Jesus' name, Amen.
