Scripture for the day is Proverbs 6:6-11

Go to the ant, you lazybones;
    consider its ways, and be wise.
Without having any chief
    or officer or ruler,
it prepares its food in summer,
    and gathers its sustenance in harvest.
How long will you lie there, O lazybones?
    When will you rise from your sleep?
10 A little sleep, a little slumber,
    a little folding of the hands to rest,
11 and poverty will come upon you like a robber,
    and want, like an armed warrior.

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, it is wrong to overwork, driven by a need to succeed and please others. But it is equally wrong and destructive to be lazy. Here, as in so many other areas, I need divine aid to strike the godly balance. Help me, Lord! Amen.
