It’s too cold and dark

One Wednesday evening as I was driving home from church, I passed by a corn field and the farmer was out there in the darkness with the headlights on working to bring in his harvest. God used this picture to remind me of this verse:

Proverbs 20:4 (KJV) The sluggard will not plow by reason of the cold; therefore shall he beg in harvest, and have nothing.

Do you use the cold of winter or the darkness of night as an excuse to not work in your field which is white already to harvest? Do you neglect soul-winning when the cold temperatures come and the nightfall comes early? If so, is it any wonder that you are not bringing in much of a harvest?
