Bible Quotes – Avoiding Laziness


Laziness leads to poverty; hard work makes you rich – Proverbs 10:4 CEV

Now we learn that some of you just loaf around and won’t do any work, except the work of a busybody. So, for the sake of our Lord Jesus Christ, we ask and beg these people to settle down and start working for a living – 2 Thessalonians 3:11-12 CEV

Lazy people want much but get little, but those who work hard will prosper – Proverbs 13:4 NLT

In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, we command you, brothers, to keep away from every brother who is idle and does not live according to the teaching you received from us. For you yourselves know how you ought to follow our example. We were not idle when we were with you, nor did we eat anyone’s food without paying for it. On the contrary, we worked night and day, laboring and toiling so that we would not be a burden to any of you. We did this, not because we do not have the right to such help, but in order to make ourselves a model for you to follow – 2 Thessalonians 3:6-9 NIV
I passed by the field of a sluggard, by the vineyard of a man lacking sense, and behold, it was all overgrown with thorns; the ground was covered with nettles, and its stone wall was broken down. Then I saw and considered it; I looked and received instruction. A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest, and poverty will come upon you like a robber, and want like an armed man – Proverbs 24:30-34 ESV

Lazy people take food in their hand but don’t even lift it to their mouth – Proverbs 19:24 NLT

The desire of the lazy man kills him, for his hands refuse to labor – Proverbs 21:25 NKJV

Lazy people sleep soundly, but idleness leaves them hungry – Proverbs 19:15 NLT
