"He that gathereth in summer is a wise son: but he that sleepeth in harvest is a son that causeth shame." Proverbs 10:5
OUR CHALLENGE TODAY!
In Mathew 9:37,38 God appeals to us to wake up out of our laziness, saying, "Then saith He unto His disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the laborers are few; pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth laborers into his harvest." It is displeasing to God when we are sleeping at a time that the harvest is ripe. What does He mean by sleeping? Not paying attention, not working to win souls, not realizing what time it is, and not caring that many others are going straight to hell because no one will tell them about Jesus! That is sleeping on the job, and as a Christian it is part of your job to win souls and bring them to the saving grace that you yourself have received freely! Just as Hebrew 11:6 says, "But without faith it is impossible to please Him." so it is impossible to please God if you are sleeping during harvest time!
“And in the same house remain, eating and drinking such things as they give: for the laborer is worthy of his hire. Go not from house to house.” Luke 10:7
THIS DAY IN DEVOTION:
Work hard and be blessed!
