Week of August 7, 2022

There is a proverb that occasionally helps me get motivated when I’m feeling lazy… it’s Proverb 24:33-34 ~ 

33    A little sleep, a little slumber,

A little folding of the hands to rest;

34    So shall your poverty come like a prowler,

And your need like an armed man.1

Now, today I’m not specifically thinking of material poverty, I am very much thinking about spiritual lethargy quickly followed by spiritual poverty.  A cat may very comfortably sleep fifteen hours a day with no ill effects.  When we begin to let ourselves slide spiritually we may get away with it (for a while) with no ill effects too.  But… before you know it, you’ve got a problem.  You’re under attack and you don’t have the necessary resources to draw on.  You’ve neglected the Spirit, you’ve ignored your Lord Jesus, and God the Father will let you have your way.

I don’t really know why, but the Spiritual disciplines have been bubbling up in my thinking over the past month.  It may be that, with the lazy days of summer falling on us, some of us are letting good habits slip, and instead are allowing a little sleep and a little slumber to replace single minded pursuit of God.  That is never good.

Get back to it, Christian warrior.  Now is not the time to drift along.  Now is the time to lean into the Spirit of God, to take up the mantle of prayer, and to check in with your Commander In Chief; Jesus.  Pray!
