“He who tills his land will have plenty of bread, but he who follows frivolity will have poverty enough,” Proverbs 28:19, NKJV
“Something for nothing!” It seems to be the way of the world. Many are searching for the next big thing that is going to push them toward success yet when the face of work peeps around the corner they run in the opposite direction. The truth is, life takes work and a lot of it. Anything worth having is going to take work. Something will never come out of nothing, It takes an effort of heart and mind, strength, and endurance to see the results we may desire for our futures.
For example, the farmer will not dare to go out into the field hoping to reap that which he has not sown for. If no seeds were put into the ground and the field had not been tended to – if the work has not been done, he knows that when the time of harvest comes there will be no produce, no benefits to reap from. Yet, many still go out into the field seeking to reap when they have not planted.
“He who tills his land!” He who works it! He who puts forth an honest effort knowing that if he keeps persevering and keeps pushing forward eventually he will reach the point of plenty, of being able to reap off of the goodness he put into it. Your land is what God gave you. It is your gift, your ability, your talents, and skills.
Many put a lot of faith in things that will not produce a harvest. Work what God gave you! Guard what you do with your time and efforts. Are they leading you to where you want to be? Is what you’re doing sowing into your future? Will you be able to reap “plenty” from the seeds you have planted today? We only have one life to live, by the grace of God, make it count! Work it today! God bless you in all your endeavors today 🙂
