Water the Grass

It has been feast or famine with my yard this year. We had so much rain during the spring, it was hard to mow because of the mud, then the rain stopped in July and my yard has begun to resemble the Sahara. One area, especially, where I had seeded new grass last year looked so wonderful during the spring, now looks like the infield where I played Little League. I have an urge to steal second base every time I walk out on our back porch.

Water is an essential ingredient for grass to grow. We need to realize the same thing about studying God's word and growth in our spiritual life. Too often, we fall into a feast or famine routine. We read the scripture diligently for a time, then begin to miss a day here and there and suddenly, we are in the spiritual Sahara. Water the grass. Find time to read God's Word daily. Your neighbors will thank you.

2 Timothy 3:16 (NIV)
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.
