- Pray for Speedo while he’s on the IR. More importantly, his 89 year old father is back home in West Virginia battling terminal cancer as well.
Wisdom is something every F3 PAX should soak up. Proverbs is chock full of it.
Proverbs 6:10-11 “A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest – and poverty will come on you like a thief and scarcity like an armed man.“
I love sleep. I love naps. I don’t know if it’s a product of the Marines where you had to steal minutes of shut eye at every opportunity you could take – or because my body needs recovery from running and workouts. But I love sleep. I dumbfound people when I tell them I can get up at 0500, workout from 0530 to 0615, get home by 0630-ish, take a shower, and then crawl right back in bed. And actually fall asleep! Post workout sleep is the best sleep in the world. Prove me wrong!
To me, that’s needed sleep. Your body has to recover.
But there are also times when we’re lazy. And we’re guilty of it in many different ways. When we’d rather sleep, slumber, or nap instead of doing what we know needs to be done, we become “lazy.” The bible is very good at using words that we can relate to that can also mean other things relevant to our lives. The bible isn’t saying you shouldn’t sleep or nap. Or that you can’t enjoy the simple pleasures of “resting your eyes” in the warmth of a summer breeze or on a beach somewhere. It’s saying that we can become complacent and capable of ignoring things around us simply because we just don’t feel like it. We can become legitimately lazy. When sleep and slumber become more important that doing what needs to be done – we impoverish ourselves. And “poverty” doesn’t always mean money.
If I know I need to spend time in the Word, but choose to do something else, I’m robbing myself of spiritual riches. If I ignore my kids’ plea for time with me, I’m robbing my family of loving reinforcement. If I am too focused on my own laziness to spend time with my wife, I’m robbing myself, and her, of a strong relationship that God intended for us. This also means that we are making these blessings scarce (“scarcity as an armed man”).
We recently touched on the importance of making ourselves available to those with mental health issues. When we’re too lazy and are concerned with ourselves, we’re robbing our unhealthy friends of the opportunity to be heard.
You can’t be someone to somebody, if you’re completely removing yourself to begin with.
Tuesday we learned not to eat our own vomit. Today, let’s be reminded not to return to our folly and become lazy.
