Proverbs 28:19 NIV

By July 28, 2023No Comments

“Those who work their land will have abundant food, but those who chase fantasies will have their fill of poverty.”

I chase fantasies. Yep, I’m kind of a dreamer. The thing that keeps me from Solomon’s reproof of the dream chaser in this verse is that I do it as a hobby, kind of my golf or fishing. I work hard on my calling then when I have a few spare moments or need some diversion I chase a dream or two. I produced two documentaries as a hobby. They were not to make money, simply a fun dream. Just ask the investors. In this verse Solomon clearly compares the hard worker and their focus to those with a get rich quick kind of approaches to life. He lets us know God equipped, gifted, and set us on a path of being diligent about the hard work of His calling. We are not focused on this work to get rich, that may or may not happen, but we are diligent because how we work reflects on God and shines a light on His Kingdom. Paul tells us in 1st and 2nd Corinthians that our work today lasts into eternity. We do what we do to honor Him and as His children it reflects on Him. Today do your work. #BeTheEdge
