I love Proverbs 22:13: "The slacker says, "There is a lion outside! I will be slain in the streets!"
It nails one of the biggest pieces of head trash....Excuses, excuses, excuses.
People always find fake "lions" i.e. excuses as to why they can't be successful. We live in a world at the moment where 'cancel culture' is abundant. Folks are being 'cancelled' left and right because of things they say or actions they take.
