How would you characterize the season of life you are in presently? Is it fulfilling, difficult, mediocre, or a combination? I grew up a farm boy. Farmers do different work in different seasons. There are seasons for planting, for resting, for fertilizing, and for harvesting. There is a lot of preparatory work required in order to reap a harvest. Doing what is required now in your present season will enable you to benefit during your next season of life. I encourage you to do the work that the season you are in presently requires. You may be in a fulfilling season of harvest, or in a hard or monotonous season of plowing and sowing.

Marriages also go through seasons. My wife LaVerne and I are in a wonderful season of life presently, but some years ago we had a hard season. But we refused to quit during this hard season, and today, by God’s grace, we are reaping the benefits. Stay the course.

Relationships, families, jobs, businesses, churches, and nations all go through seasons. Let’s receive grace to be consistent and pray and listen to God and obey Him during our present season. Proverbs 20:4 tells us, “Those too lazy to plow in the right season will have no food at the harvest.” We need to do the work that corresponds to the season we are in. Sow now for a future season and experience the blessing that is being prepared for you.
