Mishlei 21:25-26 - The Lethal Desire of the Lazy Person (Part 3)
תַּאֲוַת עָצֵל תְּמִיתֶנּוּ כִּי מֵאֲנוּ יָדָיו לַעֲשׂוֹת:
This morning (3/23/22), in our Morning Mishlei shiur, we continued to develop the approach we took yesterday, inspired by Rabbeinu Yonah. We spent the first half of shiur developing a "horseshoe theory" about the developmental trajectories of the leitz and the atzel, and we spent the second half of shiur working on the second half of the last pasuk. Our goal tomorrow will be to complete our analysis AND identify some practical techniques for overcoming laziness (בג"ה).
