“Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong.”

‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭3:17‬ ‭NLT‬‬

I recently bought a lavender plant, even though I knew, given where I purchased the jewel, it’s lifespan was likely quite limited. I gently loosened the dry soil and lightly watered it, nurturing my purple beauty into a lovely flowering miniature shrub. Then, a few days ago, the plant completely wilted. Not once did I feed this plant any vitamins or minerals to make the soil, and thus roots, healthier. When you and I sync our spiritual roots into the wrong soil, we ourselves become unhealthy. But when we set our hearts on God’s love and immerse ourselves in Him, we grow into fully developing followers of Christ. What soil are you planted in?🚦
