A good farmer will work hard for several months to get a good crop while all their neighbours are watching and commenting. The birds of the air, the pests, the rodents and everything with eyes and mouths will patently watch every step of the process. When the crop is grown and the harvest is almost ready all these spectators will want to get into action. The farmer therefore brings in scarecrows, animal traps, electric fences, local security and everything available to ensure that his hard earned harvest is not consumed by the wrong mouth. Protecting the harvest is very important otherwise all your hard word is thrown to the wind.
Time and again I have seen hardworking saints go through the labour of faith and love to get themselves and business to the next level only to forget about protecting their investment at a time when every scavenger wants it on the action. You must learn how to protect your family, your kids, your investments, your property and all the harvest God is bringing your way. Yes, you are a nice guy who wants the best for everyone but you must know where to draw the line and refuse to be robbed of your hard earned harvest. Don’t just throw your harvest to the pigs in the name of faith or love. Stay away from the pigs and keep the blessings God has brought your way. Stop haemorrhaging the blessing of God.
SCRIPTURE READING: Matthew 7:6 “Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces.
DEVOTION PRAYER: My God, I thank you for the grace to protect my family, investments, property and harvests in Jesus name amen.
