I’ve been quite bothered these past few days with the Idleness of many around me. The reason it bothers me is that it seems like it’s become a lifestyle.
I’m not just talking about Idleness of people without job or work but more so with the people who work for multinationals, government & other organizations. It’s quite awful to see people who settle down with comfortable jobs with less work and live with a false sense of satisfaction that all is well with them.
The other word for Idleness is lethargic which means becoming sluggish and apathetic.
What is this new lifestyle and where is it leading us into?
I’ve heard stories of our fathers and forefathers who’ve had a tough grind to help our generation reach where we are and I’m sure we all have our set of stories to tell about that.
“Idle people are often bored and bored people, unless they sleep a lot, are cruel. It is no accident that boredom and cruelty are great preoccupations in our time.” – Renata Adler
Son, get rid of Idleness. Hard work is a virtue you must possess all the time, not just to earn money but even when you know you are self-sufficient or have a surplus. If you are slack, you will live a life of mediocrity but the more diligent you are, the more you will seek excellence. Don’t let a life of slothfulness kill you and destroy the purpose for which God created you.
