Jesus, your word tells me that the way of a slothful person is a hedge of thorns, but the way of righteousness is a plain path. I want to walk in the path of righteousness for your name's sake. O Lord, I do not want to be lazy because I know that a slothful person is the same as a great waster. Thank you Lord. Amen.
