There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot,Ecclesiastes 3:1,2
Today we will continue the series “The Seasons of Life”, where through 4 texts we will be led to reflect on the moments through which our lives are composed by making an analogy with the seasons of the year, thus being spring, summer, autumn and winter.
Without a doubt, we can say that our life is full of different circumstances that are not always well defined as the seasons, sometimes spring is not only flowers and thinking about this I remembered a violin concerto by a very famous Italian composer named Antonio Vivaldi, entitled “The Four Seasons”.
In his composition, through music he brings in different notes these nuances that exist within each season, just as life is, but it is still possible to perceive that there is a cycle, a beginning, a middle, and an end. The season we will see today is summer, a time of joy, but also of a lot of work.
He who gathers crops in summer is a prudent son, but he who sleeps during harvest is a disgraceful son.Proverbs 10:5
This is a time of great heat and also of much rain. It is a time when we cultivate the seeds we have planted, taking advantage of the frequent rains to water what we have planted. Summer is usually also a time of great joy and this reminds me of the fable where the ant works and prepares for winter, while the cicada just has fun.
How often do we not demand that the seeds we plant germinate in a short time, but ignore our responsibility to provide a favorable environment for their growth? Bringing it to our life as Christians, how many times are we evangelizing someone and in the very first weeks, we charge a maturity that we have been charged with for years?
Or else, we ourselves expect results in the most varied areas without even doing what is necessary, we think that for the little done, God already has the commitment, or even in our arrogance, the “obligation” to grant us what we want. If we plant we will certainly reap, but there is a right time for everything.
And when the right time comes, it doesn’t matter if we are in a crisis, on the eve of a great crisis, or if hunger is knocking at the door. When God enters the scene nothing and no one can frustrate the Lord’s plans.
Take advantage of the sunny days to cultivate, water, and take care of what you have planted, respecting God’s time. This is the time to cultivate, reap, and be prudent in our actions. Take time today to think about what you need to do in the summer of your life.
God bless you!
