We Don’t Grow Anything

I have talked about the need for you to do the work of growing up in the faith. How does that work mesh with what God is already doing?

Gordon T. Smith says, “…the genius of human action is that it is an act of response to and participation in the actions of God.”

We have to understand that we don’t grow anything. God does the growing but we, like a farmer in the field, have to do the planting, the watering, the weed removal and wait for God to do the rest.

What are you planting today?
