Chapter 22 Verse 13:
"The Sluggard says: "There is a Lion Outside! I'll be killed in the public square"
The Lazy man will always find an excuse to shirt his duty. To the sluggard, there is always a "lion" or another insurmountable obstacle. The Lion becomes someone else's responsibility to remove. Where the sluggard sees an obstacle, the Wise and Industrious sees an opportunity. We do not live in fear of the Lion. We embrace the struggle and invite the challenge. The Opportunity to slay a Lion is not common. Men of Wisdom and Industry are not common either.
Without question, doing battle with Lions may lead to failure. Is the Glory not worth the risk? Bobby Kennedy told us "Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly." Challenging the lion is Always worth the battle.
As to the Sluggards...They best stay inside and leave the Lions to those worthy of the challenge.
The Proverbs Project
For the next 30 days, I intend to read and reflect on one chapter in the book of Proverbs.
