ECCLESIAL THOUGHTS (WEEK 12) “GROWING”

“It’s what you learn after you know it all that counts.”

_Coach John Wooden

GROWING

After you reach a certain age, do you stop eating? Like, once you’re fifty, do you still have to eat? Of course you do. You have to eat every day to be truly healthy. Your body needs a constant intake of nutrients, minerals, and sugar for growth. Weird diets and quick-fix weight-loss schemes are dangerous because they may short-circuit your growth   and ruin your health in the process.

Your mind also needs a constant intake of knowledge. You’re never too young or too old to learn. But learning isn’t caught like a cold. It’s done on purpose. You learn by putting stuff into your mind. Positive stuff has a positive effect. Your “intake choices” make a difference in your daily attitude.

How about spiritual growth? You not only need to “feed your face”; you also need to “feed your faith.” Taking time for Bible reading and prayer is like stopping for lunch. Both activities have a positive and powerful effect.

Way to “grow”!
