Proverbs 20:4 Sluggards do not plough in season; so at harvest time they look but find nothing.
Another proverb about laziness! Here is a simple fact – if you don’t get on with things at the right time, then everything else will be out of time and a waste of time! Strike while the iron is hot!
Ephesians 5:16 making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.
This is not about what might have been but what is. Right now. A follower of Jesus is called to be a servant of God. Each of us is called to be wholehearted about it and to plough up the ground , plant seed, wait, and reap a harvest – in that order and each at the right time!
A sluggard might shilly-shally about when is the right time! The willing servant sees that it is always, spiritually, the right time to start ploughing the field.
Ephesians 5:14 This is why it is said: “Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.”
