Did you ever water a greenhouse? There are no shortcuts. If you don’t water every little plant they die in a day. It’s one of those jobs that you have to do slowly and deliberately.
We had three greenhouses on the farm. They were filled with bedding plants that had been transplanted into little 1”x1” packets of dirt. Those dry out in a hurry in a hot greenhouse. They need a lot of water lots of times.
If you rushed the job and just sprinkled the tops of the plants and dirt, the roots dried out quickly and the plants died. There was no way to cheat on this job.
The Bible pictures itself as water (See Ephesians 5:26). We need to water the spiritual roots of our lives with the Word of God. Otherwise we will wither away and die.
Are you a believer in Christ? Are you trying to exist in the heat of life without water? Why not take a drink today at the springs of living water that Christ provides us through His Word?
Jesus spoke these sad words of some –
“And some fell on stony ground, where it had not much earth; and immediately it sprang up, because it had no depth of earth: But when the sun was up, it was scorched; and because it had no root, it withered away.” (Mark 4:5-6)
