June 23 – Seven Deadly Sins: Sloth

June 23, 2012

SLOTH

Sloth is defined as spiritual or emotional apathy; that is, neglecting what God has commanded, and being physically and emotionally inactive.  Sloth can also indicate a lack of desire to take care of anything that would require maintenance, refinement, or support to continue to exist.  Could I be guilty of this spiritually?

Pro 15:19  The way of the slothful man is as an hedge of thorns: but the way of the righteous is made plain.

Rom 12:11  Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord;

Heb 6:11-12  And we desire that every one of you do shew the same diligence to the full assurance of hope unto the end:  That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.

Mat 25:26, 30  His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed:

30  And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Once again, this “Deadly Sin” called Sloth is a sin that begins in the heart and is a death warrant for my soul.
