Cartoon of two cats. One says, “Don’t let our owners bother you. They have no idea how hard we have to work at being lazy.”
I thought of this cartoon when I read in Proverbs about laziness in Proverbs 6.
6-11 You lazy fool, look at an ant.
Watch it closely; let it teach you a thing or two.
Nobody has to tell it what to do.
All summer it stores up food;
at harvest it stockpiles provisions.
So how long are you going to laze around doing nothing?
How long before you get out of bed?
A nap here, a nap there, a day off here, a day off there,
sit back, take it easy—do you know what comes next?
Just this: You can look forward to a dirt-poor life,
poverty your permanent houseguest! (Proverbs 6:9-10, The Message)
Sometimes, I wish I was my dog or cat. What a life! They get to laze around and I get to work so I can take care of them!
This worked perfect for Illustration Friday. This week’s word is “Proverb.”
