Many people fall into the traps of traditions and they basically stop seeking a deeper understanding in the love of God due to the extra effort that is required and the growing pains that come with maturing of new wine. This is why so many different denominations have been birthed within Christianity but unfortunately many have put caps on the well for they don’t want their flock to surpass the shepherd.
Jacob addressed this same message in Genesis 29. For there were sheep thirsty and waiting at the well but due to the traditions and the extra effort required of the shepherds they were not willing to go the extra mile until they were challenged by Jacob to simply do what was right. Traditions can be good for God instructs us to establish certain days in order to recall our past and to give us appreciation for the future but if we are not careful traditions can trap us unless we are willing to seek the other side… For the Kingdom of Heaven is like a mustard seed and what tree can grow to its full potential when placing caps at the well??? Here is a song that will uplift you this morning Our God Is Greater have an awesome day!!!!
