Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness. – Colossians 2:7
What are roots?
They are the part of the plant that is able to go deep. The part that is responsible for bringing nutrients to the plant so that it can grow stronger.
Sometimes I clearly see that my roots are depending on earthly things to give me what I need. I depend on people. On money. On doctors, medication, laws.
What are you depending on today, to make you strong and healthy? Is it working? Is it lessening the worry? Calming the fear? Tempering anxiety?
Today I put a stalk of celery in a cup of water with food coloring in it. You can use a flower, if you choose. The rest of this week, observe how important your roots are. If I look to tainted water to give me what I need, I end up discolored and not nourished at all.
There’s only One Who gives living water. It matters where your roots go.
Father, may we always seek Your Word as we strive to build our lives on You. Thank You for being a true foundation. Our faith is growing stronger and our hearts indeed flow with thankfulness. In Jesus’ Name, Amen…
