Nothing in Life is Maintenance Free

Well I just completed a couple of hours of working in the yard and around the house. I dug up some roots, pulled some weeds, bagged some leaves, sprayed a bug shield around our house and a few other general things. When you really think about it, nothing is maintenance free in life. Your house is going to need some work, so is your yard and your car. But it doesn't stop there when it comes to maintenance and making sure things continue operating as they were designed. How about your body, your marriage, relationships, and even your walk with the Lord? These are all things that we must continually take care of to make sure they're working well. I sometimes think it's easy to forget about upkeep and maintenance. Maybe because we don't enjoy doing it or perhaps we do genuinely forget. But one thing is very certain, if you don't take care of things, they will deteriorate very quickly. Don't let anything in your life deteriorate because of your lack of care :) Take note of what Proverbs 24:30-34 warns us about, "I walked by the field of a lazy person, the vineyard of one with no common sense. I saw that it was overgrown with nettles. It was covered with weeds,  and its walls were broken down. Then, as I looked and thought about it, I learned this lesson: A little extra sleep, a little more slumber,
31 32 a little folding of the hands to rest-then poverty will pounce on you like a bandit, scarcity will attack you like an armed robber."
