Proverbs 20 - Key

v4

The sluggard will not plow by reason of the cold; [therefore] shall he beg in harvest, and [have] nothing.

Cold makes me think of all kinds of discomforts. For example, we can delay the work we're supposed to do because we're tired, hungry, or thirsty, or because it's too loud or too quiet. But if everything has to be convenient before we'll apply ourselves, we'll end up as poverty-stricken beggars!

Application

When I have something to do, and I think of some other little thing to fix first, like getting a cup of coffee, I'll won't let it be an excuse. It seems like those little things always turn into bigger things that take a lot longer than I planned.
