Summary: Do not be lazy, neither spiritually nor physically. Be active in prayer and fasting as well as doing what you have to do physically for success. Live a balanced life
May the peace of the Lord be with you.
*DAY 12 OF LENT*
Our reflection for today is on the 10th Kingdom Culture from the parable below:
Matthew 13:24-30 King James Version (KJV)
24 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:
25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?
28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?
29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.
30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.
*The culture of watching, praying, fasting and putting your hand to the wheel (the culture of not being lazy spiritually and physically)*
You need to pray and fast whiles you keep watch and you need to practice what you want to get your achievement or success from. Constant and continuous practice. Do not be lazy or do one part to the neglect of the other. As you do the spiritual part, do the physical as well.
Prayer: Daddy please help me to live a balanced life. Help me to be active and committed both spiritually and physically. May I come out from any form of laziness in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen.
