Bobby Thornhill, Former Pastor CentreviIle & White's Chapel United Methodist Churches "Laziness casts one in- to a deep sleep, and an idle person will suffer hunger. He who keeps the commandment keeps his soul, but he who is careless of his ways will die." Proverbs 19:15&16 (NKJV) The writer gives us a bit of advice that is of great importance in keeping our bodies healthy and in the next verse ties that advice to the more important task of keeping our souls fit by keeping God's "command- ment." I believe that the "commandment" referred to is none other than Deu- teronomy 6:5 "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength." For us to become spiritually lazy or careless is to sink into a place of "deep sleep." It is of the utmost impor- tance that we develop in- tentional attention to our relationship with God; a haphazard, now and then, almost incidental devo- tion is no devotion at all. When we fail to place our relationship with Him be- fore all others there is the danger of falling into the abyss of complacency; this abyss is near the entrance to hell itself. It is in fact the "front porch" of a life without God's presence, a training ground where we, by our own complacency, choose to live apart from God in the manner He wishes, thereby preparing for eternity alone. Is this intentional? Not at first; though the longer we al- low ourselves to live with- out God as our focus, the easier it becomes to ignore Him altogether and focus on ourselves. Friends we simply can't afford to be "lazy" in our walk with the Lord; if we find that we are trapped in the abyss of complacency let us cry out to God while we can still escape. Continued care- lessness with the health of our soul may lead us to the second death of eternal damnation, from which is no escape.
