The Hardworking Farmer| EP. 110

To be a reliable man, you have to take responsibility for your own life.// Garret Barbush

On EP. 110 Garret finishes up the series on reliable men from 2 Timothy 2:2. Today we turn our attention to the hardworking farmer. The farmer knows how to work hard and when to work hard. When it comes to the hard-working farmer it’s the crops that he produces that fuel his body. He knows he must put in the work to put food on the table. To be a reliable man, you have to take responsibility for your own life. Lazy men don’t make good proteges, overworked men don’t make good proteges. But farmers, men who know when to rest and know when to work, make excellent proteges.

 Takeaways:

  • Today as we finish the conversation on reliable men, we focus on the hard-working farmer
  • “Join with me in suffering, like a good soldier of Christ Jesus. No one serving as a soldier gets entangled in civilian affairs, but rather tries to please his commanding officer. Similarly, anyone who competes as an athlete does not receive the victor’s crown except by competing according to the rules. The hardworking farmer should be the first to receive a share of the crops. Reflect on what I am saying, for the Lord will give you insight into all this.” // 2 Timothy 2:3-7
  • The farmer works hard, his strength comes from his own crops
  • The farmer knows he cannot sit idle, he must go in the fields when the opportunity presents itself
  • The farmer knows how to work hard and when to work hard
  • When it comes to the hard-working farmer it’s the crops that he produces that fuel his body. He knows he must put in the work to put food on the table
  • To be a reliable man, you have to take responsibility for your own life
  • There is a season for rest, but also a time to put the extra hours in –a reliable man discerns when that time is
  • Find that man that is willing and ready to put the work in, so that he can look Jesus in the eyes and hear “Well done good and faithful servant.”
  • Lazy men don’t make good proteges, overworked men don’t make good proteges. But farmers, men who know when to rest and know when to work, make excellent proteges
