Proverbs of a 37 yr old man

Those who work their land will have abundant food, but those who chase fantasies have no sense. A farmer deserves his harvest. He has worked hard. He has looked after his animals. He has ploughed his land and he has sowed his seeds. He has protected his crops from the weather. He has rescued the plants from animals and insects. His reward is the harvest. The person who merely imagines is lazy. He may make plans, but he does no work. He would be a very poor farmer. His imagination cannot help his plants and animals to grow. If the lazy man refuses to work, his plans will achieve nothing. A field is useful to farmers, if there is enough rain to make good crops grow. In fact, God will bless such a field. There is abundant food in the fallow and uncultivated ground of the poor in spirit. But land that produces only thorn bushes is worthless. It is likely to fall under God's curse being swept away by injustice, and in the end it will be set on fire. Pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask him to send more workers into his fields.

2 Tim. 2:6
