Yesterday’s sermon reached out and nipped you, didn’t it? 

Proverbs 20:13 Do not love sleep or you will grow poor; stay awake and you will have food to spare.

Poverty and Scarcity are not the companions Christians.  As Jesus walked on Earth, he didn’t have a lot of money, but he was wealthy.  He had been given much and He returned much (plus interest).  He was not in poverty.

Can you rest and keep your Sabbath strategically?  Don’t use it as an excuse to loaf.  It all boils down to prioritization and balance.  How can we keep the important things important, and how can balance our life?


ps. pray for my consistent blog companions: Rob is traveling.  Joshua has a hurting back.

  1. I will be praying for them pastor. At this point in my life I have been so busy that I really did not think of myself as lazy but after yesterdays sermon I fell convicted because although I am working a lot I realize I have been slacking a bit on bible reading. I must learn that balance. GOD Bless you pastor.

  2. God showed me two things while you were preaching yesterday morning. One was that putting off what He has required of me has created a callous, a hardening of my heart towards the things of God and the second point was that He will not require another thing of me until I have completed the first thing He requested of me. Every time I do what He asks me to do, I am allowed to return and revisit my first love experience with Him. Jesus is love.

  3. Pastor, sorry for being absent on Sunday, we haeard about the awesome sermon and we will purchase the CD. I did not think I was lazy but after hearing about Sunday, …
