The Lionized and the Lazy
A sluggard says, “There’s a lion in the road, a fierce lion roaming the streets!” — Proverbs 26:13
The sluggard (lazy man)has all he needs:
- An impromptu venue.
- An imaginative story, the promise of the wild.
- An opportunity.
The big cat is a small issue compared with the real problem: the sluggard would rather sabotage himself than the status quo: So the venue becomes an object of fear. The story becomes an excuse. The opportunity becomes a reason to hide.
The sluggard and the circus ringmaster have a lot in common, but perspective makes them worlds apart.
