proverbs {paraphrased}

proverbs 13:4
"...lazy people want much, but get little, but those who work hard will prosper."

when you let laziness govern your life, complacency crowds out your good judgement.  when you refuse to practice self-control, ignoring the need for order in your life,  your purpose is strangled. your dreams diminished.  your promising tomorrows become empty yesterdays.

however... if you have ears to hear and you are willing to listen to the voice of reason and responsibility; if you are able to balance your days, your hours and minutes in the interest of your future and God's plan for your life, then you will be able to discern, perceive and comprehend in ways you never thought possible.
