“The grass withers, the flower fades. But the word of our God stands forever.” Isaiah 40:8
If you were to look at your life today as a plant which plant would best describe who you are? Are you a flower that makes other people smile, a cactus that people want to only observe from a distance, or are you the strong oak tree that others lean upon in a time of need?
In the body of Christ we are all living plants that are given life in the breath of God. We all have a unique purpose to spread the seeds of love in the Word of God to help nourish others along the Way. It is very easy to look upon the differences within the body but until we learn to focus on ourselves and strengthen our own roots then our lives will serve no purpose and can eventually fade away.
Don’t fall to thinking the cactus has no purpose because in a drought if the flower was to seek the cactus for advice the flower might learn how to survive to one day bloom again…amen
