A plant needs to be taken care of in order for it to live, and to grow. Taking off the dead leaves, giving it water, feeding it plant food, and giving it some sun. But, if it’s not fed, it slowly dies.
We are the same. If we are not fed the word of God, we slowly die to self, to the ways of this world.
But, if we are fed the word of God, our light shines, God sheds away old bad habits, our minds are renewed, and our paths are directed by God.
Be fed daily, by reading the word of God. Let God live within you, and know that God is the true way.
