"Well, in plain English," the doctor replied, "you're just lazy."
"Okay," said the man. "Now give me the medical term so I can tell my wife."
Speaking of laziness, I am reminded of some of the humorous images painted by Solomon in the book of Proverbs:
The lazy man says, 'There is a lion in the road! A fierce lion is in the streets!' As a door turns on its hinges, so does the lazy man on his bed. The lazy man buries his hand in the bowl; It wearies him to bring it back to his mouth. (Proverbs 26:13-15)
Oh, I know, I know, if you were to make a list of the ten worst sins, you probably wouldn't include laziness. But, think about it for a moment. Think about something good that you intended to do recently — make a visit, send a card, invite someone over for dinner ... Now think about why you didn't get it done. Is there a chance you said, "I just didn't get around to it"? That may be the "medical term," but you know what it is in "plain English."
Make a little extra effort — yes, it will take effort — to do something good today that you know needs to be done. No excuses, no laziness, just do it.
