Put Your Hand to the Plow

When I saw this moment in time, of a plow in a garden with a chair, it reminded me of my favorite verse from the Bible. Luke 9:62 - "Jesus Said, "No one who sets a hand to the plow and looks to what was left behind is fit for the Kingdom of God".

What this means to me is like when a farmer plows a field they must be committed to the task to reap the fruit of their labor. Likewise, Jesus in this scripture speaks of the seriousness, and the unconditional nature, of Christian Discipleship. That we must be committed to, and not distracted from, the proclaiming of the Kingdom of God, no matter how briefly.

So then looking at this picture, and the illumination from the morning sun, it's as if the Holy Spirit is shining on this field with the plow. That there is no time to rest when it's time to plow.

A picture with a good reminder that God is with us through our work in this world.

Enjoy your day!
