Deborah and The Bees

Deborah and The Bees…

Go to the ant, O sluggard,” (Prov. 6:6). Wisdom is learned from the ant and also a similar insect, the bee. In Hebrew, bee is devorah or Deborah. Deborah was named after the bee.

We have an expression, “busy as a bee.” You never see bees goofing off, or leaving the hive to hang out at the bowling alley. They are always busy. Many believers aren’t always busy like bees.

They may be lazy in reading the Bible or their prayer life, serving or ministering, or spreading the gospel. When it comes to the things of God, we are called to be diligent, always abounding in love and in the service of God.

Blessed is the servant whom the Master finds doing His will at his return investing the talent the Master gave him. Jesus said, “I must be about My Father’s business.” Laziness in the things of God is not a blessing.

Learn to be as wise as a bee. Get busy with your prayer life; with the Word; with service and ministry and fulfilling God’s purpose in your life. For the sweet honey of the Lord will flow when you start getting busy as a bee.

Worship the Lord your God, and his blessing will be on your food and water. I will take away sickness from among you, Exodus 23:25

Busy yourself with heavenly things. Seek the joy in ministering to others and be active in ways to spread this joy of His love today.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,
