Disney’s Zootopia introduced the world to a sloth named “Flash” who works at the DMV, the Department of Mammal Vehicles. Everyone identifies with Flash’s slowness while reflecting on their own painstakingly long experience at the Department of Motor Vehicles. 


Slothfulness carries with it a moral and spiritual meaning. It is one of the deadly sins because it undermines productivity in society and, ultimately, God’s plan. Ecclesiastes 10:18 says, “Through sloth the roof sinks in, and through indolence the house leaks.” 


Is your roof leaking? Are you too lazy to fix it? Sloth is the enemy of productivity and a job well done. The best way to defeat slothfulness is to dedicate yourself to diligence and to avoid working at Disney’s DMV.
