Rooted

As i lay in bed about to sleep before a new day full of hiking and trails and learning about science and God with fifth graders, i wanted to share a very quick reflection with you.

Today, i got to teach the students about geology, and one of the specific topics was erosion. Erosion is defined very simply: “When rocks move.” A fun fact is that trees with strong roots help to prevent erosion.

As believers we are repeatedly urged to be rooted in Christ. Whether it is a passage like Psalm 1, Jeremiah 17:7-8, Colossians 2:5-7, or one of the versions of the parable of the sower, it is extremely important to be rooted in our Christian beliefs so that we can act out what we believe.

If we look at society, it is clear that it is eroding away. As believers, we must be rooted deeply in Christ so that we can help to slow the erosion process we see so clearly around us.

In this with you.

Soli Deo Gloria
