He that tilleth his land shall have plenty of bread: but he that followeth after vain persons shall have poverty enough.

Proverbs 28:19 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

If you would have success then go to school,

And plant the seeds of knowledge in your mind.

A fallow intellect becomes a fool,

Where weed and brier thinking is entwined.

If you would be in love then make a friend,

And cultivate affection and regard.

To blindly plow will meet with no good end;

Whatever grows most likely will be marred.

If you would know the Lord then practice prayer,

And water both your heart and soul with tears.

A parched relationship leads to despair;

You’ll just eat bitter fruit throughout the years.

The land that’s rightly tilled will yield good bread.

Don’t place the ass behind the plow instead.

REMEMBER: Whatsoever a man sows, he shall also reap. (Galatians 6:7)

7-10-14 No Looking Back

plough

If you desire to follow Jesus now

You must be ready now to lose your life,

For laying hands upon the heavy plow

Demands you give your all through whip or knife.

There can be nothing you have left behind

That makes you want to stop and turn around.

The way of Christ requires all your mind,

Your body and your love for Him profound.

If you look back upon your former days

And long for something you once loved to do,

You’ll surely stumble, fall and lose your way,

So leave the past behind and follow through.

When you make Jesus Christ your Lord and Saviour

You leave upon the cross your old behaviour.

“No man, having put his hand to the plough,

and looking back,

is fit for the kingdom of God.”

Luke 9:62  KJV
