Why do men sleep? -6

Matthew 13:25 “But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way

…From yesterday…

5. CARELESSNESS: This is one reason most believers have fallen asleep and never recover. This is a silent destroyer of men and destinies.

The dictionary says to be careless means, “Not giving sufficient attention or thought, especially concerning the avoidance of harm or mistakes.” 

That’s a perfect description of carelessness.

Things happen to many people and happen around them and they never deem it fit to pay special attention to the occurrences. They just handle things with levity without proper meditation  and deep thought.

I saw many men fall to this error in the bible, men like Esau, the young prophet in 1 Kings 13, King Saul and even Prophet Eli (especially the way he trained his children). Aside these men, one that never ceases to amaze me is the great Samson.

This man was so powerful, the legendary Hercules and Superman will envy him. I believe the world is yet to see another man that operates with this kind of anointing. As powerful and anointed as he was he ended up dying with his enemies at the prime of his career simply due to this error called careless.

Every time I read his story ii cannot but wonder at his level of carelessness. Before he was born, certain taboos or rules were placed upon his life and he knew them but he broke each of those rules one after the other. 

The one I couldn’t just understand was the way he have a way the secret of his power to Delilah. I cannot imagine that level of carelessness.

Judges 16:7 “And Samson said to her, “If they bind me with seven fresh bowstrings, not yet dried, then I shall become weak, and be like any [other] man.

Judges 16:11 “So he said to her, “If they bind me securely with new ropes that have never been used, then I shall become weak, and be like any [other] man.””

To be continued…
