Summer Time is Busy Time
He that gathereth in summer is a wise son: but he that sleepeth in harvest is a son that causeth shame. Proverbs 10:5
Do you find the summer months to be extra busy? With school out of session, most people are out of routines. Some people get more accomplished, while others get less accomplished. Some get up earlier to work or play and others remain sleeping!
I see an increase in business for sure. With brighter sunshine mornings to extended daylight evenings, there seems to be more to do and a little more daylight to do it.
For our church, we see more opportunity to witness and take the Gospel to the households in our community. In the winter it is more difficult to share door to door with people avoiding opening their doors to talk as it lets the cold in. The winter is more slippery and I have fallen on ice several times out visiting.
That leaves us the warm weather sun kissed days of summer as the best time to plant the seed of the Word of God, water the fields with the Gospel and see the Lord add to the Harvest.
I encourage you to participate in giving out the Gospel this summer. Go door to door. Hand out some tracts. Bring someone to church with you.
While boating, fishing, camping, hiking, 4 wheeling and more are at their peak – it is also the peak time to do the work of the ministry in telling others about Jesus.
