The lazy do not roast any game, but the diligent feed on the riches of the hunt. – Proverbs 12:27
Some places where else this is discussed:
Prov. 12:11; 19:24; Eccles.5:19
We all have dreams we want to carry out. Many of these dreams get left behind due to forgetfulness, inability, or the difficulty of life. Here, the reason we might or might not achieve our goals is based on our level of diligence. The picture in the proverb shows a hunting trip for food and how one’s laziness keeps them from roasting the spoils. Some plans can go astray despite our best efforts, but when it’s up to us, let’s work hard at what we hope for.
