Proverbs 12:11 Whoever works his land will have plenty of bread but he who follows worthless pursuits lacks sense.
When God created Adam, it wasn’t only for relationship but for work. God put Adam in the garden to work it, keep it and cultivate its potential fruitfulness. It was only as Adam gave himself to working his land, did the land yield its harvest. The same is with us. God has appointed a specific harvest field and land to everyone of us to work on. Discovering that land is a blessing but working on its fruitfulness is rewarding. Sadly, it’s too easy in our culture to be distracted from the work God has entrusted to us and one of the big challenges in life is simply staying focused on what God has called us to. I encourage you to think about what land and field of harvest God has called you to and then give yourself to working it and producing fruit in it. Proverbs 14:23 says, “In all toil there is profit, but mere talk tends only to poverty.“
