Laziness Personified

After reading this article about the on-demand ordering of coffee and its delivery right to your office, I immediately thought, "Isn't this laziness personified?" Can we not make our own coffee?

Regarding laziness, the wise man Solomon wrote:

"The lazy man buries his hand in the dish, and will not even bring it to his mouth again" (Proverbs 19:24 NLV); and...... "The lazy man buries his hand in the dish. It makes him tired to bring it to his mouth again" (Proverbs 26:15 NLV).

Obviously, this lazy man was far too lazy to even feed himself.

In contrast, the Proverb writer was a big believer in industriousness and thrift (Proverbs 6:6-11; Proverbs 12;27; Proverbs 20:4; Proverbs 22:13; Proverbs 24:30-34; Proverbs 28:19; Proverbs 30:10-31 NLV).

I like what Chad said in his short comment under the above article:

"The best Coffee is always made by yourself."

Indeed it is, Chad ..... indeed it is!
