If a person is not willing to work, he can find endless excuses to avoid it. But laziness is more dangerous than a fierce lion. The less you do, the less you want to do, and the more useless you become.
To overcome laziness, take a few small steps toward change. Set a concrete, realistic goal. Figure out the steps needed to reach it. Pray for strength and persistence, and follow those steps.
To keep your excuses from making you useless, stop making useless excuses.
Proverbs 26: 13-16
