Daily Verse: “He who gathers in summer is a prudent son, but he who sleeps in harvest is a son who brings shame.” Prov. 10:5

Farmers understand seasons better than anyone. They know how many days they can plant and harvest. Not harvesting means not eating. Farmers who sleep through the harvest won’t provide for their families or survive the winter months.

“The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.” Matthew 8:37-38

People yearn to know about Jesus and receive the gift of eternal life He offers.   Becoming a prudent child means we take every opportunity to share Christ’s love with others. Experiencing a bountiful harvest requires laborers.

Our time in the sun lasts for a short while; life on earth ends all too quickly. But eternity with God doesn’t end. Sharing Jesus’ love to the best of our ability will help build God’s kingdom and ensure a bountiful harvest. Don’t sleep through the harvest. Take every opportunity to plant seeds of love and yield a bountiful harvest for the Lord.

Lord, forgive us for missed opportunities to harvest.  Help us plant seeds of love everywhere we go, leading to a bountiful harvest for You.  In all things, let us honor and serve You well. IJNIP. Amen
