Word for the World devotionals from Dr. Randy White

Short-Sighted Thinking

“Where there are no oxen, the feeding-trough is clean, but an abundant harvest comes through the strength of an ox.” (Proverbs 14:4, HCSB) 

I once heard a cute, poetic piece of advice that went something like this:

To clean the house while the kids are still growing

Is like shoveling the walk before it stops snowing!

This piece of advice is related to the message of Proverbs 14:4.  To have a clean barn seems like a noble thing, perhaps even a sign of an industrious farmer.  However, King Solomon was pointing out that the one who emphasizes a clean barn has missed the point: only barn-dirtying oxen will bring in a great harvest.

Are there any areas of life in which you emphasize the clean barn at the expense of the great harvest?  

In His Grace,

Dr. Randy White
