The Bible teaches that God provides all our needs, and is gracious enough to give us even those things we don’t deserve. However, that does not mean He tolerates laziness or slothfulness.

When Israel went out of Egypt and journeyed into the wilderness, God showed His power by providing their food for 40 years. But when they reached the Promised Land, the food from heaven stopped. Why? That’s because God wanted them to plow the field and harvest their crops.

God is not pleased when His followers are like the sloth, a lazy animal who just eats and sleeps all day. He does not always bless people supernaturally because there is the natural law of sowing and reaping. If a man is not sowing anything, why would he except that he would reap something as well?
