Laziness is a sin because one is always asking for blessings
Laziness indirectly kills thousands if not millions or billions of people. Calling it a sin would be an offense.
If we all were less lazy, we would get more done, we would be able to feed the 3.5 billion people who are suffering from malnutrition, build homes for the 100,000 homeless people and advance in technology faster.
Oooooh good question. I'd like to think that there is no such thing as laziness...just people not being properly motivated. As far as whether it is a sin or a blessing...I'd say it depends on who's perspective we're talking about.
Depending on the situation. If you're required to be working, laziness is definitely a detriment to your life. It's more of a personal flaw than a sin because there's no malice in it intentionally. Of course, if a person's laziness is mixed with complete ignorance to a dangerous situation that could get someone else in trouble or hurt. Then, that's definitely sinful. The only real time that laziness is a blessing is on a day or days when you can actually do nothing on purpose. Those are the days that warrant some casual laziness. Celebrate those days instead of the other ones.

Do your blessings often come in disguise?This happens to me often - things like not getting the job I wanted and then a few weeks later landing the job of my dreams. I think God likes to have a little fun with me.

In the bible, Isaac blessed Jacob and he prospered. Is it then right that he stole his brother's blessing (courtesy of his mother)and went unpunished. Was that how God willed it? Some one please explain.

Can someone else's Free Will limit or prevent God's grace and blessing towards the one you pray for?God gave us Free Will, with that said; what effect can it have toward receiving grace and blessings? If some else prays for you to have blessings from God, can your Free Will unknownly prevent it?...
