Introducing in this Blogspot Feature, Margaret. In her short years on this earth, this now single parent of two very little boys has had some of the hardest struggles in life. Margaret has learned first hand, in some horrific trenches that her dependence and strength is found in only our Father God and Lord Jesus Christ. Victoriously, He makes a way where there doesn't seem to be a way.
Do you know? The bible says that, 'God has given us the ability to be wealthy and prosperous in the Lord'.
'A lazy man will reap what he sows and because he is lazy and will not work the thorns of this world begin to cover his field.
The man who does not occupy his field is allowing his field to be occupied by the things of the world and NO good fruit comes of thorns.
Jesus said,"DO MEN GATHER GRAPES OF THORNS, OR FIGS OF THISTLES?" You can read it in MATTHEW 7:16.
If you keep reading He goes on to say good trees make good fruit and bad trees make bad fruit. Heres the deal bad tree make bad fruit, why ? Because they are being occupied by corrupt morals/ principles.
Being lazy produces corruption by nature because that one is not tending to their field and because they are not doing anything at all (which is an action, not in motion) and results in poverty, destuction ect. You have to work in your field. The field of (life) .
So here we go;
You want a marriage, you get married .
You want money, you go get a job.
You want friends, you go find someone to be friends with.
Okay, that's nice and all, BUT!
(Here's the stop sign.)
WHAT KIND OF FRIENDS DO YOU WANT?
WHAT KIND OF WIFE/HUSBAND DO YOU WANT?
WHAT KIND OF LIFE DO YOU WANT TO LIVE ?
IF you want good fruit you have to sow good fruit in your field. If not then don't do anything at all and see what happens, thorns will just start to appear in your field.
So doing nothing results in the same way as someone sowing bad seed. Neglecting to do the right thing is neglecting to plant good seed.
The bible says,'To know the right thing to do and do it not, to him it is sin.'
It's kinda like guilt by association . If you see someone beating someone else are you going to sit there and do nothing about it? NO! But using wisdom you are going to aid that victim. (In the book of Proverbs we are taught how to not react in a way that would be like grabbing a dog by the ears and being attacked by the dog.)
SO -- quietly call the cops if there is a chance you might be shot or otherwise put yourself as a victim, RIGHT? But, Love must find a way to help.
Okay so your going to do something about the problem. If you do not do anything at all then you are GUILTY BY ASSOCIATION.
So many christians want to say WELL THE DEVIL DID IT, AND NEVER ASK THEIR SELVES DID I HELP HIM DO IT? Just a thought. I know I have been guilty of this many times in my life. Choose to take action! Amen !
So you see choosing to do nothing with the field of your life is sin. Find the right thing to do and DO IT!
Neglecting to do what you KNOW is right is sin.
All knowledge and wealth comes from God the Father, SON, AND HOLY SPIRIT! Choose to apply God's understanding to your life ! PROVERBS 3:5-7 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the Lord and depart from evil.
I went by the field of the slothful, and by the vineyard of the man void of understanding; And, lo, it was all grown over with thorns, and nettles had covered the face thereof, and the stone wall thereof was broken down.Then I saw, and considered it well: I looked upon it, and received instruction. Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep: So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth; and thy want as an armed man.
