Are you planted in the Word of God or do you sway however the winds of the world may blow? Our life can be compared to a tree that is planted in a pot when we are not rooted to the source that holds us up. Think about it! A tree in a pot can only grow so much due to the restrictions of the vessel and another wise point to capture is how a tree in a pot has to rely on others to feed it because it never taps the eternal food source.
If you were to look at your life today as a tree, where would you find your roots drawing their nutrients from? Would you find that your tree is resrticted due to the walls of the box that you live in? Or, would you find that your tree is healthy and reaching out daily to the light of Jesus Christ to grow stronger than before? In everyday that we are given we should be striving to increase our root system with the Lord to withstand the elements of this world. For there is nothing like learning how to stand on our own and knowing who holds us up…Amen
