An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

Summer Ready

(Pro 6:8 KJV)  Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest.

In our modern times we can’t relate much to getting food ready in the summer.  I guess there are still some people who have gardens and do canning but most of us just rely on the grocery store.  I am not making any observations about preppers or survivalists but there is a principle that is of use here if we apply a little imagination.

Have you ever had a winter in your life?  You know the times I am talking about.  Nothing is going right.  You are struggling.  Depression is just around the corner.  How do you make it through those time?  The wise servant of Jesus “prepares” (3559) in the summers of life.  Note that this is not the autumn or fall where the harvest comes in.  This is in the time between planting and gathering.  It is the time where you fix the harnesses and gates.  It is when you work on all those projects that are necessary because you know winter is coming.

So?  Accept that life will not be a perpetual summer or spring.  Winter will come.  Have you been getting ready?
