Larry Burkett said, "The trend today is to seek the path of least resistance, and when the going gets difficult, give up." That is a good description of a lazy person: the one who seeks the path of least resistance and who gives up when things get difficult.
Most of the world is lazy. Too many believers are idle. Few attain their God-given potential. The kingdom suffers because of the too many spectators who are said to be soldiers in the army of the Lord. The loss to God, to the kingdom of God, and to the lazy person that is caused by the sin of laziness is beyond measure. Must things continue that way? I do not think so.
Laziness is a deadly sin. The one who commits this sin can be delivered. That is what this book is about. May the Lord bless you as you listen to it! Amen.

This book is really convicting and brought to light many struggles in laziness I did not even realize I had. I would highly recommend it for any mature Christian!
My only concern was that I feel it over emphasizes our responsibility and choices a bit at the end, while under emphasizing the changing power of God's grace in our lives and how God ultimately delivers us from this sin, not our own efforts.
However, still a great book! I'm going to listen to it again in order to better identify where I personally struggle with laziness.
it's an exceptional book with lots of insights. I the author was able to capture the heart of the matter
