Proverbs 6:6-11 The Message Bible

6  You lazy fool, look at an ant. Watch it closely; let it teach you a thing or two. 7  Nobody has to tell it what to do. 8  All summer it stores up food; at harvest it stockpiles provisions. 9  So how long are you going to laze around doing nothing? How long before you get out of bed? 10  A nap here, a nap there, a day off here, a day off there, sit back, take it easy - do you know what comes next? 11  Just this: You can look forward to a dirt-poor life, poverty your permanent houseguest!
