Most of us innately understand it’s not good to be lazy. Most of us would also probably never admit that we are lazy. We work or go to school, we come to church, we hang out with friends. And the truth is that most of us are probably not lazy, in terms of doing nothing each day. But most of us can probably find time in our days where we are lazy- time spent on social media, watching Netflix, etc. It’s not that these things are bad. It’s that if we feel like we don’t have any time or if we’re beginning to feel lazy, these are areas to look at.
1. Who is someone in your life you think is lazy? Why?
2. Now, identify characteristics you share with your lazy friend. How are you lazy (or have the potential to be lazy) like your friend?
Challenge: Spend this week auditing how much time you spend online: Facebook/Twitter/Instagram/Snapchat, watching shows, online shopping, etc. Go next level and ask a spouse, family member, or friend to help you. If you’re like most folks, you’ll discover you’re online anywhere from 10 to 50 hours a week!
