A few months ago, someone took the time to clear a few acres of land. Now the vegetation has grown back up taking over the land. If I miss a week mowing my yard, our little dog won’t venture out in the yard because the grass is too high for her. Our spiritual life is much the same as my yard. If we don’t take the time weekly to spend time working on our spiritual life, the things of the world can easily over take our minds.
Hebrews 10:24-25 (NIV)
24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.
25 Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another--and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
