Asleep At Harvest Time

“He who gathers crops in summer is a wise son, but he who sleeps during harvest is a disgraceful son.” (Proverbs 10:5, NIV 1984). 

“I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest. Even now the reaper draws his wages, even now he harvests the crop for eternal life, so that the sower and the reaper may be glad together.” (John 4:35–36, NIV 1984). 

My Musings – The seeds have been sown.  Much has fallen on rocky soil or have been choked out by weeds.  But elsewhere, “look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest.”  Now is not the time for slumber.

My Advice – It seems to much of us that harvest time is drawing near.  We must work, for the night is falling.  Until then, let’s keep working.

Work, For The Night Is Coming

Work, for the night is coming,
Under the sunset skies;
While their bright tints are glowing,
Work, for daylight flies.
Work till the last beam fadeth,
Fadeth to shine no more;
Work, while the night is dark’ning,
When man’s work is o’er.

— Anna L. Coghill

I was raised in a Christian family and my earliest childhood memories include regular Sunday school and Church attendance as a family. I was taught that our Judeo-Christian values were not just a part of our Sunday routine they should be part of our character and influence all aspects of our lives. I was also taught that as important as these values were they could not save us. We must also be “born again” by accepting Christ.
