LET US NOT BE LAZY from George Wion's blog

It is important to discover the things that hinder our spiritual progress and deal with them. 

Spiritual growth requires diligent effort, one of the basic hindrances would be laziness. We're called to: Labor in His Word- John 6:26-27, Labor in prayer- Colossians 4:12-13, Labor in faith- 1 Thessalonians 1:3, James 2:17.

This diligent effort helped the heroes of faith to inherit the promises of God. Hebrews 6:11-12 tells us to show the same diligence to the full assurance of hope unto the end: 

and that we should not be lazy but rather be imitators of those who through faith and patience inherited the promises. There is no promise in the bible for a lazy person whether natural or spiritual except poverty. 

Jesus called the lazy, "wicked and slothful and demanded that they toke the talent from him and give them to the diligent. This is contrary to what the world  believes. The world would take from the diligent that has and give it to the lazy that does not have. We call that sympathy but Jesus does not see it that way. In all labor, there is profit and Jesus is about productivity (Matthew 25:14-30).
