Dying Petunias

Looking out onto my deck, I see that most of my potted flowers are in distress. It’s been a few days since I watered them. Even a good, thorough soaking on Friday doesn’t do any good by Monday.

??

It reminds me of the children of Israel being fed manna. It was an everyday thing (except on the Sabbath) – to try saving any for the next day was futile – it would be rotten by the next morning. Fresh manna each day – that was the ticket!

??

So it is in nurturing our souls. We need fresh flowing water of the Word. We need fresh Bread from heaven each day. We can try being irregular but our soul suffers – it dries up, wilts – dies if neglected long enough.

??

Are you tending to the needs of your soul? When is the last time you got off by yourself? Spent time meditating on his word? Prayed to the Father like you really cared to spend time with him?

??

I’m going out to water my flowers right now!

Peace,
