How to Fail

How to fail in life:
1). Pursue earthly joy with all your might.
2). Never do anything that involves commitment, labor, or suffering.

Prov. 19:24
The sluggard buries his hand in the dish,
But will not even bring it back to his mouth.

Prov. 21:17
He who loves pleasure will become a poor man;
He who loves wine and oil will not become rich.

Prov. 21:25
The desire of the sluggard puts him to death,
For his hands refuse to work;

Oh Father, save us from the snare of vain and petty joys. Make us like Jesus, whose face was set like flint to go to the cross.
