Laziness as a virtue

Anyone who knows me knows I'm a sucker for a good bible study - especially when discussing the useful proverbs found, ironically, within the Book of Proverbs. For example, here's my favorite taken from Proverbs 20:4 -

The sluggard will not plow by reason of the winter;
Therefore, he shall beg in harvest and have nothing. 

For those not raised in a Southern Baptist home, I'll translate this into Stew speak. It means the lazy  - me, myself and I - can always find excuses to procrastinate. It's what we're good at. Exceptionally good, I might add. We look for the ideal and most convenient time to begin a task (such as blogging), but sometimes those times may never come. Take today for instance. I just can't find the ideal time to blog, so I'm going to end up posting a video at the end of this post that maybe half my audience will find mildly amusing. As for you other two faithful blog readers, tough cookies!

Something else I've learned though my years and years of bible study is that us lazy people are generally cowards. We procrastinate because of our fears. Here's my favorite internal message to myself, "Why bother writing a book by the age of 40 because nobody will like it anyway." Incidentally, I've yet to write a single paragraph for any book, and I'll be turning 42 yrs old tomorrow - so get those cards filled with cash in the mail NOW! 

But cowardice itself should be feared because, as I understand things, cowards are the first on the list to be thrown into the Lake of Fire (which I do not believe is one of Minnesota's 10,000 lakes):

But for the cowardly, unbelieving, sinners, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their part is in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death. Revelation 21:8

So my friends who are atheist, gay, or REALLY into Harry Potter can rest assured knowing I - along with all the other cowards in the world - will be testing out the lake water ahead of you... but come on in the water's fine (albeit a tad on the warm side).

Wow. Where did all that stuff come from? And here I wasn't gonna write much and instead just post the following video I received in my daily All-Pro Dad email:  Six Things NOT to Do for Your Marriage
