To whom your work is being worthwhile?

  • *“Remove your ways far from her [the strange woman], and do not come near the door of her house, that strangers not be filled with your strength, and your labors be in the house of a stranger;” (Proverbs 5.8,10)* – What it was written in brackets was added in order to make easy the understanding.

Will the fruit of our labor go to the home where the peace of Christ is able to rest (Matthew 10.13) or are we helping the enemies of Jesus’ cross (Phil 3.18; 2Chronicles 19.2)?

  • “Why do you weigh silver for what is not bread? and your labor for what never satisfies? Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.” (Isaiah 55:2).

Jesus said “knock, and the door will be opened for you” (Matthew 7.7). Nevertheless, why are we obdurate to the point of persist on knocking on Ha-Satan’s door?

Let’s veer from the stranger’s house and listen carefully to Jesus:

  • “Ho, everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; and he who has no money, come, buy and eat. Yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. Bow down your ear, and come to Me; hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David.” (Isaiah 55.1,3).

It's so much better we bow down our ear and go to Jesus than see other people storing up violence and robbery in their palaces to our expense (as in Amos 3.10).

Don’t contemn Jesus’ gift in you (1Timothy 4.14). Have a good weekend eating only what come out of Jesus’ mouth (Deuteronomy 8.3; Matthew 4.4; Luke 4.4).
