God says, "He who gathers in summer is a wise son; he who sleeps in harvest is a son who causes shame" (Proverbs 10:5).
P. Ready to be directed in the truth today. Will follow You. Lord, please use us to gather in righteousness according to Your Word, rather than to scatter people away from You. Please make us usable and give us Your wisdom to not impede your Holy Spirit's drawing. Yes, use us for Your sake - wanna build Your Kingdom, not mine. Amen.
Many say "Tomorrow will be a much better time to share Jesus with him." I sadly have said that before and missed a good opportunity. Sure there's a time to get the plank out of your eye so you can better see the issues, but please don't wait until all is so peachy in order to go tell em about the cross and the love of Jesus Christ that was displayed there!
If you wait until all the circumstances around you become wonderful just to start witnessing in the Spirit, then you will indeed wait too long, and some of your valuable friends will slip away into a place where you won't be able to go hang out with em again. Not a good thing at all. Yup, the best time to sow, tend, and REAP people into the Kingdom of God is when you are young.. when you are middle-aged.. when you are elderly - any time when God says now!
"For the unlearned, old age is winter; for the learned, it is the season of harvest!" ~ Yiddish Proverb
