A Study of Industry

Whoever watches the wind will not plant;
    whoever looks at the clouds will not reap.
As you do not know the path of the wind,...
so you cannot understand the work of God
 the Maker of all things.

Sow your seed in the morning,
    and at evening let your hands not be idle,
for you do not know which will succeed,
    whether this or that,
    or whether both will do equally well.
Ecclesiastes 11:4-6

Today's Bible verse from Bible Gateway lead me to this photo--wind blowing heather.  Now, where heather grows is not the best place to plant grain so you farmers don't chastise me too much for using this example:  To get the ground ready for planting one must plow, disk, field cultivate (did I use the right terms?) and then...plant...a lot of work for one crop.
So many times we look at the work ahead of us and then crawl back in bed.  I think Solomon was hoping we'd pick up on his encouragement for working here and get off our keasters.  Wise words...point taken.
