Proverbs 28 – Cloudy with a chance…

“Those who work their land will have abundant food, but those who chase fantasies will have their fill of poverty.”

Proverbs‬ ‭28:19‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Have you ever seen the movie, “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs?” It’s about a young inventor who tries to use science to make it rain food. It sounds silly and of course in our non-cartoon reality there isn’t a way to make it rain hamburgers, pizza or meatballs. The only thing that kept the inventor going was his imagination and his dream.

Ask anyone who is successful in business and they will tell you that taking risks to peruse your dream is par for the course. It however does not always work out.

It kind of did work out in “Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs” but that’s a cartoon. It’s fiction.

In reality, if a farmer wants food, they have to work the land. If I want food to eat, I’ve got to work, get paid then exchange that payment for food.

If all I do is chase dreams and never work at them, I will go hungry.
