Verse of the Day: Have Plenty of Bread

July 20, 2008

19 He who tills his land will have plenty of bread, But he who follows frivolity will have poverty enough!

Proverbs 28:19 (NKJV)

Hard work generally leads to plenty of bread (plenty of food), but laziness generally leads to poverty. This is a common theme thoughout the book of Proverbs (which is one of my favorite books in the Bible). Now there’s nothing wrong with having fun. But it’s the overindulgence of fun that leads to poverty. Everything in moderation…

From the Nelson Study Bible:

Tills his land is a call to hard work, a promise of reward, and a warning against frivolity or overindulgence in fun.
