It is so sad to see how laziness has taken over the lives of persons. There is absolutely no more shame attached to the viewpoints of the lazy one. Proverbs 26:16 states as follows: “The lazy one is wiser in his own eyes than seven giving a sensible reply.”
Today laziness is covered by numerous so-called sicknesses, and is pampered and comforted by so-called love ones.

UNLESS YOU ARE DISAPPROVED! 6 I TRULY HOPE THAT YOU WILL COME TO KNOW WE ARE NOT DISAPPROVED. (The onus is on each and every person to frequently ensure that they are endeavouring to do Jehovah God’s EXPLICIT will to the best of their ability!)

Can a logical and practical thinking Heavenly Father allow one of those persons to enjoy the privileges when the paradise conditions are on our present earth. Although there will be no sweat and hard toil, it will be absolutely necessary for each and every one to keep the “wheel” spinning, to maintain paradise conditions.
Remember, if Jehovah God were to allow the lazy one into paradise, others will have to carry the lazy one into eternity. Jehovah God designed the human, and each human has the capacity to perform perfectly in Jehovah God’s New Kingdom on earth. In Eden, after Adam had sinned, Jehovah God said that the human race was to sweat in toiling for their bread. Look around you today, and when you see how many shirkers there are, you will most probably know why Jehovah God knew people would have to sweat. It was most probably the weight of the lazy ones that they would always have to carry while toiling.
Let there be no doubt in anyone’s mind, someone is having to carry the burden for the lazy one. Jehovah God, in the Bible, states that a person’s eye must not feel sorry when evil and lazy people are destroyed, and it will most probably not be easy to do so when the evil one gets destroyed. If you have the sad experience of watching the movements and attitudes of such people, you will be more prepared to accept what seems to be a cold and callous attitude. Others are carrying the lazy one, and the lazy one is thankless, unappreciative and mostly of the opinion that they should be so carried and spoiled, and that they definitely deserve that right.
One of the saddest occurrences is when the very rich and fairly rich spoil their offspring and they become so lazy. They enjoy such pampering and then when they get into trouble due to sheer boredom, then the “money” gets them out of the trouble. Also, you get the hardworking parents that do the same, and then when the parents have been “sucked” dry, they are “turfed” out, and land up in pathetic circumstances.
I have written above that it is possibly not easy to feel no sympathy when the lazy ones are destroyed, but when you see how many parents or relatives are being destroyed financially, and eventually spiritually, then I must admit it could quite possibly become easy to accept the destruction of the spoiled and lazy one.
2 Thessalonians 3:10 states:
“In fact, also, when we were with YOU, we used to give YOU this order: “If anyone does not want to work, neither let him eat.” The inference here is that the only future the lazy one has is to starve to death, and that is what the lazy one deserves. It is, however, most unlikely that the lazy one will starve, as one of their reasonings is that they deserve to eat, and if no one else will carry them and feed them, then they will grudgingly do something to remedy their situation. If, however, they do not rectify the situation themselves, their death and destruction will serve as a warning to others. If others become lazy, their future will be obvious.
The lazy one will not be in God’s Kingdom!
Let us have a look at a few Scriptures from the Bible about Laziness:
Go to the ant, you lazy one; see its ways and become wise.
By every kind of toil there comes to be an advantage, but merely the word of the lips [tends] to want.
Because of winter the lazy one will not plough; he will be begging in reaping time, but there will be nothing.
Do not love sleep, that you may not come to poverty. Open your eyes; be satisfied with bread.
The very craving of the lazy will put him to death, for his hands have refused to work.
The lazy one has said: “There is a lion outside! In the midst of the public squares I shall be murdered!”
Proverbs 24:30 – 34
30 I passed along by the field of the lazy individual and by the vineyard of the man in need of heart. 31. And, look! all of it produced weeds. Nettles covered its very surface, and its stone wall itself had been torn down. 32. So I proceeded to behold, I myself; I began taking [it] to heart; I saw, I took the discipline: 33. a little sleeping, a little slumbering, a little folding of the hands to lie down, 34 and as a highwayman your poverty will certainly come and your neediness as an armed man.
Proverbs 26:13 – 16
13 The lazy one has said: “There is a young lion in the way, a lion in among the public squares.” 14. A door keeps turning upon its pivot, and the lazy one upon his couch. 15. The lazy one has hidden his hand in the banquet bowl; he has become too weary to bring it back to his mouth. 16. The lazy one is wiser in his own eyes than seven giving a sensible reply.
And I have seen that there is nothing better than that the man should rejoice in his works, for that is his portion; because who will bring him in to look on what is going to be after him?
The stupid one is folding his hands and is eating his own flesh.
Let the stealer steal no more, but rather let him do hard work, doing with his hands what is good work, that he may have something to distribute to someone in need.
2 Thessalonians 3:10
In fact, also, when we were with YOU, we used to give YOU this order: “If anyone does not want to work, neither let him eat.” (It is an instruction that a lazy person may not be given something to eat. He must die.)
