A sluggard has something to say

“A sluggard buries his hand in the dish;
he will not even bring it back to his mouth!”
(Pro 19.24)

This is a prayer; that one would finish what he has started, that one would bring his hand back to his mouth — for he has buried his hand in the dish for so long such that he has forgotten that he is on a meal. But how could one possibly lift those numb hands — and hardened heart? Come Holy Spirit!
