Future Farmers of America: What is a Farmer?

Jeff Meske:

Do you ever hurry or make short cuts that aren’t best for a job? Do you ever suffer from a lack of planning? In Today’s devotion we read Proverbs 21:5, where God says “Good planning and hard work leads to prosperity, but hasty shortcuts lead to poverty.” Here in FFA we are here to have fun, learn about agriculture and see what the FFA has to offer . What is a farmer? and when did they come to be? In this small speech about farmers, Paul Harvey explains it.

The video that just played really makes me appreciate the farmers of the world. They have one of the hardest jobs but have some of the strongest faith because it is always just trusting in God that all of the crops and animals grow. And he gives them a message from Deuteronomy that says, “And if you will indeed obey my commandments that I command you today, to love the Lord your God, and serve him with all your heart and with all your soul, he will give the rain for your land in its season, the early rain and the latter rain, that you may gather in your grain and your wine and your oil. And he will give grass in your fields for your livestock, and you shall eat and be full.” In that passage it says to trust God and take pride in your work.
