The Teachings of Hebrew Wisdom on Diligence and Laziness By Jerome Schroder BIBL 105-B01 I was always told that the acronym for BIBLE means Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth. In other words the Bible is not just a book of good ideas or suggestions, it is the living Word of God and it shows us not only how to live a good and productive life but a godly one as well. In this essay I will be discussing how the book of Proverbs teaches us about God’s wisdom and how we should use it to approach life with diligence. In contrast I will also be discussing how laziness and folly will only lead to destruction. “The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing, while the soul of the diligent is richly supplied”. Proverbs 13:4. God’s will for us is to be the best that we can be. Many times in life, we are faced with difficult choices but if we trust in God and ask Him for guidance, then the choices that we make will be the right ones. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight”.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
