How do we fight inner laziness? First we must identify the symptoms. Sloth is characterized by a lack of motivation and spiritual apathy. It can be as simple as spending an entire day binge watching Netflix on your computer (I am guilty of this).
As Christians we try to imitate Jesus in everything we do. Our hope is that someone will see Jesus in us. But, sometimes our spirits are weak. How to we fight laziness?
The way to counteract sloth is to build up discipline. In other words, to do what we need to do whether we like it or not. One way to build up discipline is to start making plans. It’s harder to get out of something when you know you have an event scheduled.
What are some things you can do to be a more productive member of society? Have you been a sloth lately? And if not, what is something you can do to imitate Christ that you are not doing right now? And if there is something, what’s stopping you from doing it?
