Proverbs 10: 5

“He who gathers in the summer is a wise son; he who sleeps in harvest is a son who causes shame.”


          What do you do when your refrigerator is empty (like it’s ever empty)?  You go to the cabinet right?  Some people even have a room, or closet devoted to keeping extra food when they run out of something.  The purpose of a pantry is to never run out.  We should have the same practice in our spiritual life.  In good times “the summer” when all seems ok we should be storing up God’s spiritual truths.  Because rainy, cold, and dark days come.  Wisdom is what the whole book of Proverbs it about.  When it is the harvest where food and blessings are abundant we should be storing up those things.  So when the bad times of hunger and trial come, we can pull from our stores and not be moved from our faith, and satisfaction in Christ.
