// READ: Prov. 27:20-27 //
20 Death and Destruction[a] are never satisfied,
and neither are human eyes.
21 The crucible for silver and the furnace for gold,
but people are tested by their praise.
22 Though you grind a fool in a mortar,
grinding them like grain with a pestle,
you will not remove their folly from them.
23 Be sure you know the condition of your flocks,
give careful attention to your herds;
24 for riches do not endure forever,
and a crown is not secure for all generations.
25 When the hay is removed and new growth appears
and the grass from the hills is gathered in,
26 the lambs will provide you with clothing,
and the goats with the price of a field.
27 You will have plenty of goats’ milk to feed your family
and to nourish your female servants.
Flock in this Scripture stands for your given assignment. It is your responsibility to know the state of your flock. There are 3 states you need to take note of in growing your capacity of productivity.
i. State of Birth – Carrying Stage
ii. State of Growth – Caring Stage
iii. Sate of Production – Rearing Stage
Whatever you are doing will undergo these 3 states and your response in each state will determine your result eventually.
Prayer: Oh Lord, give me grace to undergo these states and be productive at the end.
