My baby sloth is so adorable. She is so cute, sometimes I sit and cuddle her for hours at a time. I suppose if my sloth was ugly, she would not be such a distraction, but since she is so comforting, it is easy to lose track of the time I spend with her. Sure, its great to kick back once and a while, but if I spend too much time entertaining my sloth she keep me from the best things in life.
My sloth keeps me from fulfilling my daily responsibilities and duties
My sloth makes me rely on others to take care of my needs
My sloth keeps me from doing an honest day’s work for an honest day’s pay
My sloth wastes my time with her distracting trivialities
My sloth likes watching mindless television over thoughtful reading
My sloth prefers entertainment over action
My sloth is apathetic about the injustices and wrongs in the world
My sloth gives me too many excuses for not dealing with difficult issues
My sloth keeps me busy, but she also keeps me from doing God’s will
My sloth is very tolerant and she gives me lots of good excuses for accepting the sin in my life
My sloth keeps me from serving God with zeal and joy
– adapted by me from the work of John T. Mabray
Would you like to adopt my sloth or do you already have your own?
