Proverbs 10:4 ” Lazy hands make a man poor, but diligent hands bring wealth.”

Let’s look at this verse  beyond just comparing a sluggard to a hard-working individual.  Rather, I’d like you to apply this verse to your work for the Lord.  Do you feel your life is full of steady, earnest and energetic efforts in fulfilling the Lord’s plan and purpose in your life?  Or do you feel your spiritual life is dominated mainly by apathy,and idleness?  Lazy hands and for that matter, lazy hearts, cause us to squander the gifts God has so graciously given us.  But diligent hands not only brings spiritual wealth, but an abundance of peace and joy to the worker.
