Good morning!

Text: 1 Chronicles 9-11; Ecclesiastes 11
The Book of Ecclesiastes, written by Solomon, is a reflection on life that is full of wisdom.  In today’s reading, this verse caught my attention:

He who observes the wind will not sow,
and he who regards the clouds will not reap. (Ecclesiastes 11:4)

We know we should share our faith with our neighbor, but it just doesn’t seem like the right day for success.  We know we should make that apology, but we fear we won’t say the right words.  We know we should volunteer, but are uneasy about whether we will do a good enough job.  The point is that we put off doing the right things at the right times when we are too cautious.
The reason we get skittish is because we forget that the outcomes are in the Lord’s hands, not ours.  We take too much responsibility.  We forget how powerful and wise He is, and we forget that obedience brings blessing.  So… what have you been putting off?  Trust Him and get on with it.
in Him, Mike
