Food To Spare

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

This is the time of the year when we all start to hybernate for the winter.  Napping throughout the day and bundling up inside avoiding any outdoor work (or any indoor work for that matter).  This verse is not literally talking about staying awake all the time, afterall sleep is very important to our health.  However, this verse is talking about laziness.

I believe that this verse is even talking about "spiritual food" and "spiritual laziness".  There have been many times throughout my Christian walk when I have become lazy - putting off spending time in prayer, being too engrossed in a movie to spend time reading God's Word.   All of this laziness creates a spiritual hunger inside.

Let us try - daily - to spend time reading scripture and spend time in prayer so that we will avoid that spiritual hunger and have spiritual food to spare.

  1. I do feel more lazy in the winter. Thanks for the reminder to fight that urge!


Please feel free to leave comments or questions (no question is ever stupid) - They will show up on the blog once I have read through them.
Thank You.
