Ecclesiastes 10:18 (HCSB)
Because of laziness the roof caves in,

and because of negligent hands the house leaks. 


     This verse is especially apropos since the roof in my garage is leaking as we speak.  Must. Fix. Leak.
     Solomon’s point is a practical one.  The nature of things is that they decay.  It takes maintenance and care to keep them functioning correctly whether that be roofs, walls, cars, or relationships.  If one doesn’t keep one’s house in good repair, then the house will eventually crumble. The same of course applies in the realm of life and relationships.
      Don’t be lazy, says Solomon.  Your life will crumble around you.
