Do Not Love Sleep Or You Will Grow Poor – Proverbs 20:13

We all really admire sleep!! I do too haha! But it can be so dangerous when we love it TOO much..

Over excessive amounts of sessions sleeping takes away our time. And with less time, we have less time to be able to be productive.

Proverbs 20:13

Do not love sleep or you will grow poor, stay awake and you will have food to spare

Proverbs 20:4

Sluggards do not plow in season, so at harvest time, they look but find nothing

We must aim to use every minute of our lives to be productive. Whether it be at work, working on our dreams and goals, spending time with God, our family, friends etc. Savour each moment you have and refrain from lazing around in bed all day. I know many people can fall in the habit of doing so.

I’d also like to mention, there is nothing wrong with resting at all. In fact, God rested on the seventh day! We need rest. Take whatever rest you need but be cautious to understand the difference between resting and lazing around. If you are concerned or find it challenging in any way, give your cares and worries over to God. He will help you in any and every area you need, because He cares for you.

Do you have a dream? Work for it!

We cannot sit on our couches all day without any effort of work ourselves and expecting God to pull up our goals and dreams on our doorstep. He is always working on your life but are you?

Be aware of staying alert spiritually also, remaining disciplined  and focused in your walk with the Lord.

We all have purposes in life and I strongly encourage you to go after yours! Ask the Holy Spirit to lead you in this beautiful journey of yours.

God bless,

Devona xx
