Laziness – introduction and bible study guide

Introduction:
Laziness. It is a subject that most of us would admit we have an issue with. There may be many reasons for “soft peddling” the subject of laziness.

Laziness needs to be viewed as more than just a problem for the individual but as sin. God speaks clearly and loudly about its dangers, seductions and ultimately, its subtle work at robbing an individual of character, reputation and reward.

Laziness effects more than just an individual, it wrecks havoc on the family, the church and in the corporate world too – it leaves all who practice it wide open for attack and great loss; spiritually, financially, emotionally and physically.
