I want so desperately to have a green thumb! I am filled with anticipation and hope whenever I bring home a little vegetable seedling or a new houseplant. I wait expectantly over the next few days to weeks, carefully watering, ensuring it’s getting adequate sunshine, etc. But no matter how…
“I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing,” (John 15:5, Holy Bible, New King James).
California is known for its abundant agriculture, especially vineyards. The city I call home promotes the valley vineyards as main tourist attractions. The local community college cultivates vineyards and offers related vintner courses. We are all in awe from the beauty of grapes sheltered beneath green leaves, but we seldom speak about the vine and the branches. Jesus emphasized the importance of the fruit-bearing branches being connected to Him, the source. He spoke plainly, “Without Me you can do nothing.”
Prayer: Lord Jesus, keep me connected to You, the source. Amen.
