This week's Dong proverb in the Dong Proverb Calendar has a good moral, one found in many sayings of many cultures: "If you use the time well in Spring, the grainary will be bursting in Autumn."
When applied spritually, it is also true, but sometimes much harder to visualize the spiritual grainaries. In other words, we need to be praying that our Dong brothers and sisters will be able to look forward to the fulfilled promise of God and be sowing spiritual fruit in preparation.
Father, please keep our Dong brothers and sisters firmly focused on the goal ahead, on the "spiritual grainaries." And with that in focus, teach them to be sowing the seed of the Spirit with every opportunity: sharing spiritual gifts to help the church grow and sharing the good message with those who have not heard.
