Sunday Verses

Happy Sunday! On vacation this summer, we walked through a forested area near my aunt's home in Portland. I loved all the green, especially the ivy growing up many of the trees. But, while it looked lovely, I learned that it is horrible for the trees and will eventually kill them. The ivy made me think about those things in life that "look pretty" and seem good, but really aren't. Daily, we are bombarded with things that appear great, but they are actually harmful. Thankfully, God gives us discernment to guide our decisions and choices. The more time we spend with Jesus in prayer and reading his Word, the easier it becomes to discern the good from the bad. This week, let's try to seek God more and listen to the Holy Spirit so that we make decisions that honor Him.

  1. Wow....well said. I remember when my husband explained to me why we needed to take down the ivy growing around and clinging to our trees. I was horrified at how something so lovely could do that. Well, you said it all.
    Have a great Sunday!
