Get This

I was reading through Proverbs the other day, and as so many times before, one particular verse seemed to jump off the page at me.

"He who is slothful in his work is a brother to him who is a great destroyer" (Proverbs 18:9).

Think about that. "He (me) who is slothful (careless, lazy...) in his (my) work is a brother to him (like him) who is a great destroyer." Yikes! Now that is convicting. How many times have I been slothful in my work? Uh, I don't think I want to answer that one. Let's just say, way too many times. That means I am likened to a great destroyer? Not exactly what I would like to be seen as. What about you? Have you given reason to be compared to a great destroyer today?
