1st John 3:2

When I was fresh out of school and given my first real Office Space, it needed something.

I found some plants in small containers on sale. At a great price. As in 90% off the original price.

Asked for advice as they alternately stared and laughed. I can still feel the wind from the shaking of their heads.

Took their advice: give up on these but water and feed the next ones.

That next generation flourished!

So what are you doing to water and nourish your faith and understanding?

God’s at work in us…are we cooperating?

My first office plants were made to flourish, not flounder and flop over.
