Deep Will I Dig, I

"and count the stars to measure time...
the earth is hard, the treasure fine"
from "Deep" by Gene Eugene

"Abundant food is in the fallow ground of the poor..."
from Prov 13:23 by Solomon

if the bible tells us we have everything we need for life and godliness (2peter 1)...then why do we struggle so?

i think the main reason is we use our shovels for the manure of our desires and excuses and not for digging up the fallow ground where the treasure lies untouched.

it's easy to move around the piles we is work! and moving them around satisfies our religious sensibilities...but it isn't spirtual.

spirituality is digging.
it is uncovering things you've kept hidden (even from yourself)...
it is uncovering desires and prejudices and excuses for shallow living.

it takes a determined, exerted effort.

for, indeed, the earth is hard. but the treasure is fine.
