Love not sleep, lest you come to poverty; open your eyes and you will be satisfied with bread. Proverbs 20:13 (AMPC)
Sleeping isn’t bad. We ought to sleep to rest, refresh, and be replenished. There’s a time to sleep and there’s a right amount of time for sleep.
The problem therefore isn’t sleeping but sleeping too much and sleeping at the wrong time.
When you’re sleeping you’re in idle mode, you’re unaware of what’s going on around you.
When you’re awake you’re in active functioning mode, you’re alert and responsive to what’s happening around you.
Therefore the exhortation not to love sleep means not to give yourself to idleness, and not to be unaware of what’s going on around you.
Idleness is stagnancy; it breeds poverty because there’s no productivity in it. Idleness is like a field left to itself and unattended to. It gets over grown with worthless weeds.
Open your eyes; there are opportunities all around us. There are people to connect with, relationships to engage in. There are answers available to you; to give to many who are only seeing questions, there are solutions available to you to give to many who are only seeing problems.
Stay awake and alert to the possibilities around you.
