Hello dear friends, welcome to our site in the name of Jesus Christ. Today we will look at the Bible Scriptures About Idleness In KJV. If you like today’s post then definitely comment and share.
Dear friends, we know God does not like idle people. He tells lazy people to wake up and start working instead of lying down and being idle. God also says that a person who acts like idleness never succeeds but a person who acts like hard work surely achieves success and God blesses him.
Paul wants to encourage us through his letter and he tells us to follow him as he labored day and night so we can do. And he also said that we must have something to give to the poor.
The Bible also says that the devil works in the heart of a person who pretends to be Idle. So, friends, we must work hard.
Dear friends now let’s see the Bible scriptures below that talk about Idleness.
