Seasons come and go and each season has a purpose. Seasons have an order: there is a sowing season, a growing season, a harvesting season & a resting season. Many people don't want to follow the seasons orders. They just want to sow and harvest, skip the growing. Some skip the resting season. But each season is important and must not be skipped. The attempt at skipping seasons have consequences.
Ecclesiastes 3:1-14 NLT
1For everything there is a season,a time for every activity under heaven.2A time to be born and a time to die.A time to plant and a time to harvest.3A time to kill and a time to heal.A time to tear down and a time to build up.4A time to cry and a time to laugh.A time to grieve and a time to dance.5A time to scatter stones and a time to gather stones.A time to embrace and a time to turn away.6A time to search and a time to quit searching.A time to keep and a time to throw away.7A time to tear and a time to mend.A time to be quiet and a time to speak.8A time to love and a time to hate.A time for war and a time for peace.9What do people really get for all their hard work? 10I have seen the burden God has placed on us all. 11Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end. 12So I concluded there is nothing better than to be happy and enjoy ourselves as long as we can. 13And people should eat and drink and enjoy the fruits of their labor, for these are gifts from God.14And I know that whatever God does is final. Nothing can be added to it or taken from it. God’s purpose is that people should fear him.
