There are times we must wait patiently in life. In fact, God often does great work in our hearts during our “waiting room” periods.
But there are two kinds of waiting, and Abraham Lincoln addresses the other kind…the kind of waiting caused by laziness, fear, irresponsibility, busyness and distraction.
Even in our “waiting room” periods of life, God expects us to be doing kingdom work: sharing our faith, sharing our love, sharing our resources, growing in our understanding and knowledge of Him.
Jesus reminded his disciples of this while he was on earth:
“Do you not say, 'Four months more and then the harvest'? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest.” John 4:35
What ripe fields are in your view today?
