“God has called us to work diligently before Him in all that we do, and many men learn how to do this through the responsibilities that marriage and fatherhood bring. Another honorable route is for a single man to give himself wholeheartedly to the work God has assigned him. But to drift into a lifestyle which places maximum value on recreation and entertainment, with work seen as only that necessary evil which makes it possible to earn enough money to buy concert tickets, is a tragic waste of a human life. Laziness is a very common temptation to the male sex, but it is one which threatens true masculinity. More men are likely to ‘unman’ themselves through laziness than through many other sins.”
