How to fail in life:
1). Pursue earthly joy with all your might.
2). Never do anything that involves commitment, labor, or suffering.
The sluggard buries his hand in the dish,
But will not even bring it back to his mouth.
He who loves pleasure will become a poor man;
He who loves wine and oil will not become rich.
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.
