While walking in Pioneer Park this morning, noted a mushroom (or related fungus)on the side of a trail that was at least eight inches across. Imagine the time that went into its development! Imagine how large it could become if left alone (not likely)!
The mushroom reminded me of growth in our lives. On the negative side, we are often tempted to allow small sins or fears to grow in our lives - then one day we have a huge problem. On the positive side, God plants seeds in our lives (see Matthew 13 for an example) that often grow into surprising virtues, character qualities and actions.
Have a great weekend!
