Proverbs 14:23 NASB "In all labor there is profit,
But mere talk leads only to poverty."It may seem kind of funny but I found myself praying for ice cubes! Today's verse shares with us about working or being lazy, and how one leads to profit and the other to poverty! Our ice maker stopped working on our fridge, it needed to be fixed. I knew if I did nothing, we wouldn't have ice cubes, but if I got a new part and worked on it, we would have ice cubes!! After replacing the part, I laughed at myself as I said a little prayer "God please let there be ice cubes! " And after a time, there was! Seems silly to be praying for ice cubes but I had done the work and the profit came in the form of ice cubes! We can talk all we want about this and that but not until we get off our good intentions and get working, will we see the profit! The question for today is, what are we working on that will bring God the profit? BTW, after working hard, I enjoyed an icy cold glass of water! peace, tom
