How Long Will You Lie There, You Sluggard? Sam gave this lesson at the Boston Church of Christ, in Boston, Massachusetts. The lesson centers on laziness, and above that it teaches discipline. Proverbs 6:6, "Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise!" Proverbs 6:9, "How long will you life there, you sluggard? When will you get up from your sleep?"
