Being Lazy Means Being Poor

Proverbs 24

An Honest Answer

 23 It's wrong, very wrong,
   to go along with injustice.

 24-25 Whoever whitewashes the wicked
   gets a black mark in the history books,
But whoever exposes the wicked
   will be thanked and rewarded.

 26 An honest answer
   is like a warm hug.

 27 First plant your fields;
   then build your barn.

 28-29 Don't talk about your neighbors behind their backs—
   no slander or gossip, please.
Don't say to anyone, "I'll get back at you for what you did to me.
   I'll make you pay for what you did!"

 30-34 One day I walked by the field of an old lazybones,
   and then passed the vineyard of a lout;
They were overgrown with weeds,
   thick with thistles, all the fences broken down.
I took a long look and pondered what I saw;
   the fields preached me a sermon and I listened:
"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,
   with poverty as your permanent houseguest!"

You are right. Being lazy means being poor. That is for a better life we have to work hard and make everything. Laziness prevents people from hard-working and destroys everything they have. Which eventually makes them poor. slip and fall attorney southern california So hardworking is the best thing for a better life.
