Proverbs 12:24 “Work hard and become a leader; be lazy and become a slave.”
My thoughts: Some of the greatest spiritual leaders in history were those who were willing to work hard. They put effort into seeking God and purging their lives of sin that so easily entangles. It takes our passion and God’s grace to remain holy unto Him. God can only work with those who have passion. Laziness is a producer of passivity. People who are lazy let down their guard and are taken captive by sin.. becoming a slave. They don’t fight against the sin that holds them in bondage, but allow it to destroy them. Everyone has potential, just not everyone is willing to work hard. God needs hard workers who will do whatever it takes to become who He is calling them to. He is looking for people who will lay down their lives without compromising. God needs leaders He can dream through! Will we be those people?
