I am a great fan of sleep. If I am given an opportunity to sleep, I will have no difficulty to remain sleeping for many hours. This type of love for sleep can be troublesome.
Spending too much time in bed is a sign of laziness. The lazy person seeks more excuses for sleeping. There is one quote in proverbs 24:33-34. It describes the habits of a lazy person. The lazy person is slack towards his own work. He postpones his jobs.
Consequences of laziness
The scripture warns that such kind of laziness will invite poverty. Suppose, a farmer doesn’t do his job in the due time, then he will never have grains for the off season. He will be pushed in to poverty.
Proverbs 24:33-34 NASBS
“A little sleep, a little slumber, A little folding of the hands to rest,”  Then your poverty will come as a robber And your want like an armed man.
Therefore, we have to fight against our own self. We have to wrestle against our own laziness. Paul took a decision to discipline his own body and bring it under control. We have to work hard to keep our own passions under tight control.
1 Corinthians 9:27 NASBS
but I discipline my body and make it my slave, so that, after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified.
May God help us to achieve this goal in this new year.
Abundant blessings dear friend.
