Fallow

For six years you shall sow your land and gather in its yield; but the seventh year you shall let it rest and lie fallow, so that the poor of your people may eat; and what they leave the wild animals may eat.

– Exodus 23:10-11

There’s a novel concept or is it. I think there is a great deal of wisdom there and it’s an axiom that isn’t practiced much in our production-consumption oriented culture. We’re so busy being busy that we don’t take time to let it lie fallow for a year. What part of your field would you allow to lie fallow this year?
