Growing Like Plants
But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever. Amen. 2 Peter 3:18.
We all know that growing plants requires some tender care and some work. Watering and sunshine are essential. Some people seem to have that green thumb and plants grow for them easily. Nevertheless, they probably just learned the secrets and practiced them. The same is true for the Christian. God wants us to grow spiritually and for a good reason. It takes some work as well. He wants to prepare us for Glory. Satan doesn’t want us to grow. He wants our faith to die off. He doesn’t want us to branch out in our faith. He will try many different things to get us distracted from growing. Therefore, we need to remember to be on guard. Be on guard today.
Guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life. Proverbs 4:23.
