THOUGHT OF THE DAY.
“He who tills the land shall be satisfied with bread, but he who follows
worthless pursuits is lacking in sense and is without understanding. “
As I read this verse a few days ago a thought came to me.
Am I following “worthless pursuits”?
In other words, what things/activities am I using my time on that have
no benefit to me in any way??
A few things came to mind.
The word is very clear, he who follows worthless pursuits lacks sense and is
I know God has things for me to do and understanding would be to pursue
those things with reckless abandon.
“He who tills his land shall be satisfied with bread” is what the word tells us.
When I focus specifically on the things God has for me and I do them things will
happen for me.
But when I take my focus off those things and fix them on
worthless pursuits is when things become tricky.
Let’s look at another version of this verse,
“A hard-working farmer has plenty to eat. People who waste time will always
be poor. (Good news translation)
I love this translation.
Worthless pursuits are sure to do one thing, and that is to waste our time.
We need to stop following worthless pursuits if we are going to accomplish
the purpose Yeshua has for us.
This my challenge to me and my challenge to you!
We need to take a look at what’s eating our time and cut it out of our life.
We need to stop following worthless pursuits.
There have been a few things I have cut out of my life but there is still
so much more to be cut out.
What about you?
What worthless pursuits are you following?
Ask Yeshua to help you with this. Without Him you won’t be able to stop
Bless you friends
