Traveling in the Rockies it is amazing to see trees growing out of what seems like solid rock. They are able to grow, because their roots are getting enough nourishment to barely survive. They don’t grow as large as the trees that are along the streams where they roots grow deep into the soil and they get plenty of nourishment from the stream. The trees survive brutally cold winters and strong winds.
Our Christian life are like the trees, the more nourishment we can get the stronger we grow spiritually. For us to grow spiritually we need to nurture our relationship with God. This is done by staying fed with the Word and talking with God daily. When we do this, we are able to withstand the brutal cold and storms that life can throw at us.
