Another Kind Of Thief

"If the price of labor is one dollar for the day, then to waste half the day in idleness is to defraud the employer of half a dollar; this is as dishonest as to take half a dollar from his chest."
- Noah Webster

  1. The passage was too long for a quote, but I love how he went on to emphasize that, as Christians, we're stealing from God when we only put in a half-effort, and it's just as bad as if we'd taken something directly from Him.
