Introduction:

I. Description of a sluggard. Proverbs 6:9-11, 19:24, 22:13

III. Consider the ant. Proverbs 6:6-8

Questions for reflection:
• What values or beliefs does the world hold concerning work?
• What things should motivate us to be better workers?
• How is God a model for us as laborers?
• Given that Christians have a high view of work/vocation, how does the concept of rest fit in?
