Proverbs 24:30 - 32   Thought/Prayer:  The Field of the Slothful.  Topics:  2 at end.

“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.”  KJV http://www.bible.com (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com)

Perhaps as Jesus’ disciples shared with Him, in their place apart from the crowds, they described a view such as this one regarding the lazy.  Maybe there were fields just like this one, overgrown and dilapidated.  Maybe they told Jesus how ugly that was to see; maybe they declared that they will always work hard and not be a sloth in life.

We don’t know how the conversations went, of course, among this small band of men beloved by our Lord.  But we can ourselves pay attention here.  In what ways are we slothful?  The man owning this field was indeed lazy and not very smart.  Couldn’t he surely see that if he would just put forth a bit of energy, the field could be one of great production? And it would seem pleasant to passersby. 

It is so easy for us to seek the easy way in work or in other parts of our lives.  It’s easy to let things go, to value our leisure over more important tasks needing to be done.  The recliner seems to call out to us!  A nap seems a most important urgency!  Oh, how good to sink into that favorite pillow.

Lord, help us to not give in to complacency about the work you give us.  Help us to be just the opposite of this sluggish fellow used here to portray a proverb.  Particularly in our pro-life tasks, help us to regenerate energy as we look to you for just that:  great energy for the task at hand.  We want our life’s fields to be productive, ever sprouting orderly goodness.  As we sit with Jesus, we want to report that we were faithful and always working hard.

Topics:  Pray for increased energy.  Pray against laziness in the Lord’s work, especially in LIFE work.
