Shallow men believe in luck…strong men believe in cause and effect. This praise is absolutely true. Here’s a farmer and his friend were talking about nonsense. The story began when a farmer told his friend that he decided he doesn’t need to work anymore because God will do it for him. The friend said, “Oh really? What makes you think that?”

“Well,” the farmer scratched his head unknowingly and replied, “do you remember that old shed I used to have? I’ve been thinking to tear it down for years but you know lightning struck it last month and burned it to the ground and then the wind came up and blew away all the ashes.”

“And on the basis of that, you’re going to let God do all your work? The friend said with unbelieving look. “Oh no,” the farmer continued. “Last weekend my wife asked me to wash our car, but you know a big rainstorm blew in before I got to it and the rain washed the car clean.”

The friend shook his head in disappointment and before he could say anything further, the farmer asked, “Do you know what I’m doing out here on my porch right now?” The friend said, “No, what?”

The farmer replied, “I’m waiting for an earthquake to shake my crop of potatoes out of the ground.”

What nonsense is that? Don’t expect God to do what He has empowered and enabled you to do.

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall be also reap. Galatians 6:7
