We were having one of our many wanders around Calke Abbey recently, and came across this tree.
We can be a bit like that, can't we? We might be looking fine and
dandy, but if our roots aren't good; if they're rotting away gradually,
it's only a matter of time before we collapse. I wrote about Rootedness a while back. We all need to be rooted if we're to survive and flourish.
As a Christian, I know how important it is to be rooted in my
relationship with God. That's not to say it's easy, just that it should
be a real priority. At the moment, I'm finding it hard to prioritise
the things I should, but these trees were a helpful reminder that I need
to look after my roots better.
What are you rooted in?
Are your roots nice and healthy, or have you got some work to do?
What can you do to help your roots grow?
