Proverbs 15:19 (NKJV) — 19 The way of the lazy man is like a hedge of thorns, But the way of the upright is a highway.
Thorny path of the slothful. One of the consequences of slothfulness is unpleasant, painful adversity. When the slothful person does move, it is as if he is caught in a hedge of thorns. There is trouble in every direction. But the way of the righteous is cleared of obstructions. He is able to make headway, to progress without undue difficulty.
