Galatians 6:7 If you think you can fool God, you are only fooling yourselves. You will harvest what you plant.
Trying to live what ain't is the fool's prerogative. It is the politician's promise and the sluggard's goal. It enslaves the diligent for the benefit of the indolent. All objectors to it's actions are declared unrighteous and objectionable. Any challenge to it's authority is ridiculed and derided; But on the other hand there is a "GOD" remedy for that.
Proverbs 6:6-11 Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise: Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler, Provides her meat in the summer, and gathers her food in the harvest. How long wilt thou sleep, O sluggard? When wilt thou arise out of thy sleep? Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep: So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth, and thy want as an armed man.
Tis true Lord, what fools these mortals be!
The key to the ant's success was it's diligence in all things and cooperation with those of like mind. He fought his own battles and let others do the same. He didn't borrow, and then give it to the grasshopper so he could loll about. He didn't try to live what ain't.
When GOD says go, the wise goes. When GOD says consider, the wise considers. When GOD says that apathy brings poverty the wise heeds the warning and acts to eliminate the cause.
