Our yellow squash, zucchini, and cucumbers have been yielding heavily for a few weeks, so its time to side-dress them with a healthy dose of compost. They’ve been working hard, we expect them to continue to so do, so we must give them what they need to keep going. Plants, like cars, can only go so far on fumes.
That’s also true of those who seek to serve God. We can only go so far without a refill, no matter how deeply we’re rooted in Him.
