Stay Awake

Proverbs 20:13 New International Version

13 Do not love sleep or you will grow poor;
    stay awake and you will have food to spare.

or as the NLT puts it:

NLT: “If you love sleep, you will end in poverty. Keep your eyes open, and there will be plenty to eat!”

The book ok Proverbs is one of my favourite books. I don’t know about you but the NLT seems to explain it far clearer to me than the NIV. That is if we like our sleep to much we will end up poor. Therefore we must not fall asleep so that there is plenty food on the table.
