frugaling part 4


BE DILIGENT
verses from the book of Proverbs about money

Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise!  It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, yet it stores its provisions in summer and gather its food at harvest.  6:6-8

How long will you lie there you sluggard?  When will you get up from your sleep?  A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest – poverty will come on you like a bandit and scarcity like an armed man.  6:6-11

Lazy hands make a man poor but diligent hands bring wealth.  10:4

He who gathers crops in summer is a wise son, but he who sleeps during harvest is a disgraceful son.  10:5

He who works his land will have abundant food but he who chases lacks judgment.  12:11

Diligent hands will rule but laziness ends in slave labor.  12:24

The sluggard craves and gets nothing but the desires of the diligent are fully satisfied.  13:4

Where there are no oxen, the manger is empty, but from the strength of an ox comes an abundant harvest.  14:4

All hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty.  14:23

The way of the sluggard is blocked with thorns, but the path of the upright is a highway.  15:19

The laborer’s appetite works for him; his hunger drives him on.  16:26

Laziness brings on deep sleep,and the shiftless man goes hungry.  19:15

The sluggard buries his hand in the dish; he will not even bring it back to his mouth.  19:24

A sluggard does not plow in season; so at harvest time he looks, but finds nothing.  20:4

Do not love sleep or you will grow poor; stay awake and you will have food to spare.  20:13

The plans of the diligent lead to profit as surely as haste leads to poverty.  21:5

He who loves pleasure will become poor; whoever loves wine and oil will never be rich.  21:17

The sluggard’s craving will be the death of him, his hands refuse to work.  All day long he craves for more, but the righteous give without sparing.  22:25-26

The sluggard says, “There’s a lion outside” or “I will be murdered in the streets”.  22:13

Do not join those who drink too much wine or gorge themselves on meat, for drunkards and gluttons become poor and drowsiness clothes them in rags.  24:33-34

The sluggard buries his hand in the dish, he is too lazy to bring it back to his mouth.  26:15

He who is full loathes honey, but to the hungry even what is bitter tastes sweet.  27:7

Be sure you know the condition of your flocks, give careful attention to your hearts:
For riches do not endure forever, and a crown is not secure for all generations.
When the hay is removed and new growth appears and the grass from the hills is gathered in,
The lambs will provide you with clothing, and the goats with the price of a field.  You will have plenty of goats’ milk to feed you and your family and to nourish your servant girls.  27:23-27

He who works his land will have abundant food, but the one who chases fantasies will have his fill of poverty.  28:19
