No Reason For NOT Doing Well...

Let's look at what the Bible says regarding laziness. In Proverbs 21:25, in a simpler explanation, it means that a lazy person hates to work.
As a door turns on its hinges, so a sluggard turns on his bed.

[Proverbs 26:14]

Aaahhh... I think everyone relates to this perfectly. Sleeping for hours and hours. Sleep away the whole morning. Wake up for a few hours, login to Facebook for a couple more hours. Take a long nap in the afternoon. Wake up for dinner. Online again for a few more hours. Then sleep again until the next day. I caught this picture well. Whenever the exam is here, I would operate in a super nagging way. Study~! StuDY~! STUDY LA~!! Then, I feel like bashing them with their books. They're not even studying. I don't know what's wrong with teenagers nowadays. In less than 30 minutes, she fall asleep with the notes in her hand, covering the face. Do you really think the brain will absorb all the information? If I were to ask them to study, sitting on a chair with the book on the table, it wouldn't be fair because all my life, I study in my bed as well. But the thing is I don't fall asleep while studying. I cannot understand why are they so afraid to study, to memorize and to work harder. This is pure laziness. A sloth....
A sluggard says, “There’s a lion in the road, a fierce lion roaming the streets!”

[Proverbs 26:13]

That verse is not talking about a real roaring lion on the streets. It's about people giving excuses all the time to escape from doing something. Let's go through with a few of the excuses actively used:

  1. I'm tired... wanna rest for awhile. Yes, you may rest for awhile, but nap took up the whole afternoon and you wasted the whole afternoon doing nothing. I cannot stand a person who sits down without doing anything for the rest of the afternoon.

  2. I cannot understand what's written in the book. If that's the case, ask for wisdom. Ask the Holy Spirit to be your teacher, to guide you, to bring understanding to you. But no, you would rather close the book and never touch it again.

  3. I hate that subject. Hating a subject is definitely not an excuse to fail that particular subject.

  4. I don't have enough time to study. Hohoho~! But you definitely have enough time to do all sorts of nonsense. Complaining about not having enough time is a rather lame excuse.

  5. I can't write an essay. Of course you can't write because you have never wanted to practise writing. You don't even want to read to improve yourself.

Being different. All of you want to be different, in that case why live a life that's so like every other people. You have no reason to fail the Malay Language paper. There are so many Malay books, story books for you to read. Just pick up a book and start reading. English books are everywhere. If you can't speak English perfectly, then start speaking. You can start off with a conversation with me. History is just information on what happen centuries and decades before you even existed. Treat it like an interesting events that happened long ago. Since you think it's boring then it will be boring. Additional Maths, I gave you lots of paper to do but you refuse to do anything about it.

I'm writing this for the last time. Yes, I'm upset with how all of you behave. None of you listen to me. None of you follow anything that I've taught you. The best excuse that any of you can give is, "I forget." *pfft* There's seriously no reason why you're not doing well and looking at the 'G' in the result list... that's unacceptable. In conclusion, if you want more books to study, tell me. I will supply you with so many books you can't even see yourself. I think I don't have to care so much regarding this, it's your life and your future, not mine. If you really choose to be different, then do something about yourself. Fight against your laziness. As I've always said, "No effort put in, no gain." If you see everything as a burden, checking the dictionary is a burden, flipping through the pages is a burden, everything seems to be a burden, you will never succeed in life. Your laziness will kill you one day.

One who is slack in his work is brother to one who destroys. [Proverbs 18:9]

A direct translation for that verse: A lazy person wastes time and energy.
