On Wednesday last week, my sister in North Dakota sent my sister here in Mechanicsville a picture of the thermometer showing it was 69° inside her house and 0° outside.
It was 17° here Friday morning when I went outside to feed the cats. I put on my coat, hat, gloves, and slip-on shoes. As I walked across the deck, my shoes were trying to stick to the deck. They make a loud suction sound as I picked up each foot. My feet are hot and were melting the cold surface of the deck. I thought, if I stand still, I’ll freeze to the deck. It made me think about how I need to keep growing in Christ. If I stop growing, thinking that I have arrived, I’ll freeze in place, never to be able to do anything that is productive for Him.
