We can’t neglect our spiritual life and be fruitful

We can’t neglect our spiritual life and be fruitful

Bible Reading: Matthew 13:1-9, 18-23

Over the past few years, I have made various attempts to plant a fruitful vegetable garden. Oh, how I dreamed of filling my plate with homegrown vegetables. Yet, bearing fruit proved much harder than I realized.

What was the downfall of my garden? It was lack of attention.

I would spend weeks at a time neglecting my poor garden. By the time I managed to water my plants, I found them suffering greatly from disease and overrun by pests. After a quick water, I again left my garden for several weeks. After several months of neglect, there was little evidence that a garden ever existed.

Oh, how the church is suffering from spiritual neglect!

Would you like to see revival in your own spiritual life? Then you must not neglect it. Today, commit yourself to cultivating the daily habit of Bible study, prayer, and obedience to God. Join a small group, build relationships with mature believers, and invite them to help you grow spiritually.

It is God’s will for us to be fruitful. Yet, if we neglect our spiritual lives, we will quickly find ourselves overrun with weeds and feeling empty.

What changes do you need to make so that your relationship with God gets the attention it needs?
