ABCs of the Word, "A"

"He who works his land will have abundant food, but he who chases fantasies lacks judgement."
Proverbs 12:11

"He who works his land will have abundant food, but the one who chases fantasies will have his fill of poverty."
Proverbs 28:19

My Bible study note says fantasies are schemes for making easy money.  Since it's in there twice, it looks like God values work.

Pam, at Grey Like Snuffie is starting over with "A" for a new series of ABCs of the Word. Check out her site for more entries.


  1. Oh that's good. I wish I could figure out the whole gardening for vegies thing...They are so often wimpy little nothings...I probably don't even water them as much as I should...let alone know how to make a happy bed for them and keep them fed. But every year since we moved in here I think I will plant some vegies...just not sure what. My dream plant would be a super healthy tomato plant with HUGE, sandwich size tomatoes....oh if only.

  2. Hi Sue,
    I've always encouraged my children to work hard and not to chase the easy buck! There's a lot to be said for the discipline of working for a living. Blessings on you and I'm praying that you find a good place of fellowship and worship.
