Devotion for Friday, August 26, 2011
Today is Melana’s surgery. If you guys could pray for her and us today we would be grateful!
6 Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise:7 Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler,8 Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest.
9 How long wilt thou sleep, O sluggard? when wilt thou arise out of thy sleep?10 Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep:11 So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth, and thy want as an armed man.
So it’s Friday. It’s the last day of the week, and you’re feeling tired. You’re probably not motivated to do your best work today, ’cause it’s Friday. Well, today we got a little motivation from Proverbs didn’t we?
- Explain why the ant is a good illustration of not being lazy. v.6-8
- We are tempted to procrastinate (v.9-10). How can procrastination hurt you this year at school?
- What do you think vs. 11 means? How does that happen in people’s lives?
