Sometimes we need to see a lesson rather than hear it.
A few months back Cheryl’s husband took some pictures at work and shared this with her:
“I went for a walk today around work. One road connects two sets of buildings. The road is about a quarter mile long and has been closed for a few years. I was struck by how quickly nature is reclaiming its territory – how quickly things deteriorate when not maintained.”
The road well maintained
The road after not being maintained for a few years, weeds and trees encroach, cracks widen.
Close-up sign of grass growing in cracks, an early sign of decay.
This example from the physical world is a picture of what can happen spiritually.
What can we learn?
- It takes work to maintain something.
- Little signs can indicate things need attention.
What do you see in these pictures?
