Breakfast with Solomon - Proverbs 6:7
"Go to the ant O Sluggard, observe her ways and be wise; Which, having no chief, officer or ruler... prepares her food in the summer... and gathers her provision in the harvest"
The key idea that is being communicated in this couplet is that the ant does not need a supervisor or boss to be productive and to get the right things accomplished. If you will not be productive unless someone is riding you all the time about it, then you are a sluggard.
I think many parents develop slothfulness in their children by always riding them and not asking enough questions. What do you think you should do right now? How do you think you should do it?
Make a list of the things that you should be working on this week or this month. Are you able to work on those things by yourself or do you need a person to tell you to do them? Can you give yourself permission to act in these areas?
Can you be your own boss by prioritizing your work and then doing it according to priority?
