Vegging out

Let my teaching fall on you like rain; let my speech settle like dew. Let my words fall like rain on tender grass, like gentle showers on young plants. Deut. 32:2

Many Bible metaphors cast humans as plants that are acted upon by God, soaking in nourishment and growing as a result. Merely acting on information that hasn’t soaked in does little to develop our souls or contribute to health or productivity. As we allow teaching and understanding to hydrate our souls, our roots deepen and our fruit gets sweeter and more plentiful.

Lord, integrate what I learn from You into who I am for You.
