Well happy Monday so glad you decided to begin a new week. Do you know why elephants don’t like playing cards in the jungle? Well it’s really quite simple, because of all the cheetah’s there. Ha ha they just keep slinkin’ around.


Our meditation for today is found in Prov. 20:13 “Do not love sleep, lest you come to poverty, Open your eyes, and you will be satisfied with bread.”


This passage addresses two things:

1) The extreme of putting off

needed effort

2) The benefits of a productive

purposeful life


This book is full of contrasts of

the benefits of work over

procrastination:


Prov. 10:4 Work brings financial

benefits

Prov. 10:4 putting it off brings

poverty


Prov. 10:26 Working brings

refreshment to others

—Putting off work brings

irritation to all those

around them

Prov. 12:24 Work brings a person to

leadership & benefits

—Results in slavery &

bondage

Prov. 13:4 Work brings benefits of

helpfulness rather than

hopelessness

—Brings jealousy &

covetous thinking

Prov. 15:19 Productive living opens a life of opportunity

—Causes a life of road

blocks, uselessness


These are just a few of the comparisons, we see in God’s instruction to us.


In a nut shell this is the instruction we learn. Look for ways to be productive in life and your life will be enriched and others will be blessed in the wake of your efforts as well.


So Go With God the result will be enlightened eyes, He will guide you to ways of refreshment for others. Becky has been organizing the many pictures of our life memories & the result has been that our hearts have been reminded of the many blessings we have accidentally enjoyed.

We have had to stop & joy in the many people who we have had the joy of knowing, working together with, and share in our lives together. We can never say that we have lived our lives in loneliness. For to say that would be an

Absolute lie. We have been blessed with so much to rejoice in & the root of all that joy has been our loving Heavenly Father. Surely, Great things He had done.
