“But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen.” --2 Peter 3:18
I walk Lexi for thirty minutes each day, and we can’t get very far in thirty minutes, especially since she has to stop and smell everything along the way. Lexi and I have walked hundreds of miles inside these three square blocks. We’ve come a long way. Our walk with God might also be contained within a small area. God may call us to faraway places, but we don’t need to leave home to grow in grace. We can still come a long way in faith. Serving God is serving God, whether we’re helping a neighbor or helping an African village. Every day we can experience God’s goodness more deeply, trust him more completely, and understand his love more fully—even if we never leave three square blocks. Following Christ is following Christ. We get to God.
Dear God, Bless me to go far in faith even if I don’t go far from home. Amen
