In one area of Africa where Christianity began to spread, converts were zealous about daily devotions. They would find their own spot within the wild thickets and our their hearts out to God. After some time the spots became well-worn, and paths were created. Soon, one’s prayer life was made public. If someone began to neglect his or her own devotional life, it would soon be noticed by others. Believers would then gently and lovingly remind those in neglect, “The grass grows on your path.” Today in the Word, June 1992.
So, how is your path? Are you connecting with God regularly? Are you reading the Scripture so much that the binding is worn? Time is precious, but time with the God of the universe is well worth it. What are you filling your time with that causes grass to grow on your path?
