I love plenty of house plants to help keep the air clean. We have about a dozen large plants and several small ones scattered throughout the house. Some of them drink water as if they lived in the desert, while some of the others seem to just need a few sips to keep from turning brown. In the process of trying to keep up with the watering needs of the plants I occasionally don’t water as often as I should.
When I don’t give the plants enough water their leaves begin to turn brown and eventually they fall off. Just this morning I gathered a handful of leaves that had dropped from one of my plants.
I realized that when I don’t keep my spiritual life fully watered the natural consequences are that I will begin to lose some of my good spiritual attributes. If I want to be a loving, sharing, kind, and thoughtful person, I need to consistently drink from the well of the word of God.
