Why You Need an Ox

by Mark T. Hancock · 0 comments

Around my house we like to say, “you gotta’ break a few eggs to make an omelette”.

Solomon says it much better in Proverbs 14, verse 4…

“Where no oxen are, the trough is clean;
But much increase comes by the strength of an ox.”

The point is this: You can keep things nice and tidy if you want. You can lead a simple life and not make any waves. You can stay home, watch TV and eat bon-bons all day and probably not make any trouble for yourself. But the increase will not be of the desirable type.

Or, you can get an ox. Things are gonna’ get a little messy, but you’ll get some real work done.

The only commission we receive in all of scripture is to “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature” (Mark 16:15). You need to leave the sofa to do that.

That gets a little messy, but do it anyway.
