"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

laziness and gluttony

“In its primary signification,
all vice, that is, all excess,
brings on its own punishment,
even here.
By certain fixed,
settled and established laws of Him
who is the God of nature,
excess of every kind destroys that constitution
which temperance would preserve.
The debauchee offers up his body
a "living sacrifice to sin."
- Charles Caleb Colton

“It is the just doom of laziness and gluttony
to be inactive without ease
and drowsy without tranquility”
- Samuel Johnson
