“He who is slothful in his work Is a brother to him who is a great destroyer” (Proverbs 18:9 NKJV). The slothful man can destroy a society. “The hand of the diligent will rule, But the lazy man will be put to forced labor” (Proverbs 12:24 NKJV). It’s the lazy person who gives away his freedom, but will be forced to work anyway! “The working man” is not a cliché, it is a necessity! Without working, a man has no heritage to share and enjoy! Solomon said, “So I perceived that nothing is better than that a man should rejoice in his own works, for that is his heritage. For who can bring him to see what will happen after him? (Ecclesiastes 3:22 NKJV). One of the facts of life still is: “All things are full of labor; Man cannot express it” (Ecclesiastes 1:8 NKJV).
