Spring Declaration

You lazy fool, look at an ant. Watch it closely; let it teach you a thing or two. Nobody has to tell it what to do. All summer it stores up food; at harvest it stockpiles provisions. So how long are you going to laze around doing nothing? How long before you get out of bed? A nap here, a nap there, a day off here, a day off there, sit back, take it easy-do you know what comes next?  Just this: You can look forward to a dirt-poor life, poverty your permanent houseguest! Always cooking up something nasty. (Proverbs 6:6-11 Message Bible)

Today is the first full day of Spring 2011 -- Don't let the day come and go, and not take the opportunity to set some things in motion for the rest of the coming year.  Yesterday at Winners Church we set in motion a goal, a challenge, an opportunity to take what we are learning and growing in and be full of faith and share it with whomever God puts in our path.  We in the church world are not suffering from malnourishment or lack; we are suffering from obesity and laziness.  We have sat at the table of abundance and blessing for so long we can't get up and walk, much less run the race we have been called to win.  So, on this first day of spring -- revamp your new years resolution with a Spring Declaration -- to be faithful in the little things, diligent with the trivial tasks, and store up some stockpiles for the Kingdom!
