What a great word. I mean talk about a word that sounds exactly like what it means.
Remember this post?
I came across a couple of verses a week or two ago that have really helped me to evaluate where these tendencies are coming from…
“The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing, but the soul of the diligent is made fat.”
“The sluggard does not plow after the autumn, so he begs during the harvest and has nothing.”
Basically, I should’ve gone to college and majored in the art of being a sluggard. Talk about overachieving.
I’ve been keeping the second verse on my desktop to help me remember that I want to have something at the harvest, something other than the title of ‘Sluggard’. I’m thinking about making it pretty, printing it off, and hanging it on my wall. So I can look at the word sluggard and, while enjoying the way it sounds, remember how much I don’t want to own it.
