Too Lazy To Eat?

Lazy people take food in their hand but don’t even lift it to their mouth.
Proverb 26:15 (NLT)  

Consider the children of Israel in the wilderness.
The LORD sustained them with manna from heaven.
They did not have to work hard in order to enjoy manna.
They simply had to gather it daily.
On the sixth day they had to gather it double the amount as there was no manna given on the seventh day.

How easier could it get?
The Israelites did not have to sow anything or tilt the ground under the hot sun.
They did not need to pay to have manna.  |
Hence, there is no excuse.
If the Israelites were lazy to gather it, they deserved to be hungry.

Now, let us consider our spiritual life.

We have been given so much spiritual food at our fingertips.
Digital Bible, online sermon, Christian books and many more.
We have access to all this abundant spiritual materials.

Here is the question: what are we gonna do about it?
In the natural realm, we feed our body daily.
Likewise, we ought to feed our spirit daily.  
We should not just wait until a pastor feeds our spirit on weekend.

If we rely on a pastor all the time, then we are indeed lazy Christians.
And therefore, we need to repent.
