Fence Huggers Gone Wild

Before you read the rest of this post be sure you read part one by clicking here.

Judging by the title you might have expected some type of erotic post-negative. Something worse…an unfulfilled life. But with the less than complete life comes poverty. Don’t believe it? Continue reading.

The goal of is to inspire and equip my generation. Perhaps that’s why many of my blog posts are filed in the “motivation” category.

Yesterdays post probably ignited me more than anyone. Fence hugging is dangerous and very contagious if you think too long about what you think you should be doing and associating too closely with people that don’t desire better for themselves and their family.

This scripture came to mind earlier today as I thought complacency. It’s found in Proverbs…

30-34 One day I walked by the field of an old lazybones,
and then passed the vineyard of a lout;
They were overgrown with weeds,
thick with thistles, all the fences broken down.
I took a long look and pondered what I saw;
the fields preached me a sermon and I listened:
“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,
with poverty as your permanent houseguest!” (Proverbs 24:30, The Message)

Did you read where it says “fences broken down?” I wonder why? Could it be that the person held on so long that nothing significant took place in their life.

When fence huggers are gone wild, life becomes chaotic. Without a sense of purpose anything goes and nothing is accomplished.

Life becomes delirious and full of apathy….woe is me. None of us can afford any longer to sit and look, sit and look, sit and you get the picture (literally). What fields in your life have gone wild that need pruning? What areas need to be trimmed? What hedges need shaping up? These questions can only be answered by your ACTIONS.

You have amazing potential to DO great things in life. Get up NOW. The world is waiting on YOU 🙂
