Proverbs 20:4 The sluggard does not plow in the autumn; he will seek at harvest and have nothing
We all want things: we want material things, we want our relationships to work in certain ways, we want our jobs to be successful, we want our families to be close to each other, we want our body’s to look a certain way. We want a lot of things. Yet, sometimes we just expect those things to just happen. We just expect our children will be obedient without putting any time into disciplining them properly. We all have an image we want our bodies to look like, but we rarely are willing to put any effort into diet and exercise to see that it happens. We would much rather take a pill and continue to eat all we want. We all want the next best “whatever” out there but many times aren’t willing to work to get it. God's word tells us that whatever we want we have to work for. Many times we have to work a long time before we ever see any progress toward our goals. We can’t give up just because it becomes difficult. Anything worth having is worth working for!
