The Little Things
In Proverbs 24, wise King Solomon notices the vineyard of a lazy man. He wonders about it because it's all broken down and infested with weeds. And God says to him, "A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of your hands to rest; and your poverty will come in as a vagabond, and your need like an armed man." (vv. 33-34) Did you know lives are like vineyards? They don't crater all at once. They crater little by little, as little compromises eventually turn into big problems. Hey, have you been compromising in your life? Have you been taking little steps in the wrong direction? Now is the time to turn it around. When we seek the Lord first and foremost with all our heart, it's then when we find REAL HOPE.
