We have a grandchildren's bedroom in our home where we have a growth chart on the wall where we have measured each of our grandchildren's growth over the years. Randomly we will mark their growth and see where they are on the chart. It is fun to see the growth spurts or at times we will see just a little bit of growth. Some of them have gone off the chart!
Isn't that the way with our spiritual growth? At times we have significant growth and some times sadly we have to admit we don't see much growth. But our Heavenly Father patiently waits for us to take in His Word and continue growing, that brings joy to Him and ourselves!
2Peter 3:18 But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To Him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.
