“The sluggard buries his hand in the dish; it wears him out to bring it back to his mouth.” (Proverbs 26:15, ESV)
Oh that silly sluggard…
This is a funny proverb. I am never too tired to pick up food in front of me and eat, so therefore this is a proverb that allows me to laugh at other people.
Oh those “other people” who bury their Bible on the shelf and can’t be bothered to read it.
And those “other people” whose God is always faithfully listening, but they forget to pray.
Then there are those “other people” who finally found a faithful church, but they find it too demanding to really participate in it.
