Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise:
Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler,
Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest.
I don’t want to be one who is unwilling or slow to the task assigned to me by the Master.
Neither do I want to be as one who works free from oversight and accountability.
And I certainly don’t want to be one of those who plays or lazes in the season to work.
May the harvest not go to waste when it is my duty to reap!
I purpose to…
- work while it is day.
- reap while it is harvest.
- labor joyfully and faithfully.
“Be wise” (Proverbs 6:6)
“I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work” (John 9:4).
“Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest” (John 4:35).
“Do all to the glory of God…from the heart” (1 Corinthians 10:31; Ephesians 6:6).
As I stand at this 4:40 part of my morning, I wonder how God has in mind for me to live this out today.
I hope this blog post is one of those ways.
PS: “He that gathereth in summer is a wise son: but he that sleepeth in harvest is a son that causeth shame” (Proverbs 6:5).
