Psalm:

"1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.2 He makes me lie down in green pastures.He leads me beside still waters.3 He restores my soul.He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil,for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life,and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever." - Ps. 23

Proverb:

"The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing, while the soul of the diligent is richly supplied."- Pr. 13:4

"The desire of the sluggard kills him, for his hands refuse to labor.All day long he craves and craves, but the righteous gives and does not hold back."- Pr. 21:25-26


Apply It!

Prayer:

Father, you know my heart. Keep my heart from coldness toward you. When I am apathetic toward you draw me close. When I an unresponsive to your call, rally me. When I am indifferent to others, negligent to my children, unloving to my spouse, prayerless, faithless, or careless toward my brothers and sisters in Christ; draw me back to you to warm and invigorate my heart. May my heart beat regularly for You and Your Kingdom purposes. 

Practice:

Sloth, laziness, idleness each involve the lack of doing something good. Steadfastness is faithfully and sacrificially doing the good. What good around you do you see needs to be done. On Christ’s behalf rally yourself this week to do good deeds that God has prepared in advance for you to do.
