Proverbs Daily Devotion

“The thoughts of the diligent tend only to plenteousness; but of every one that is hasty only to want.” (NKJV) Proverbs 21:5

Living out in the wilderness has many benefits. Planting a garden happens to be one of them. We have plenty of room to plant anything the heart desires.

Living on so much land has its downfalls. The size of the garden that often takes shape happens to be one of them.

My family (and I have to include myself in this most years) wants to get the plants in the ground and get the job done. So, we do. By the end of the summer, we are unable to get to whatever fruit might have formed because of the weeds – weeds that hide yellow jacket nests, fire ants and snakes as well as the potential fruit.

Haste leaves us wanting.

The few times we have taken out time and prepared the garden – weeding, turning, clearing – the results have been overwhelming.

And yet, we still plant in hast more than in diligence because for the moment it seems better.

Are you planting in haste?
