Reflect on Your Spiritual Life

A woman in a sun-drenched field of wheat

Some fell in the weeds; as it came up, it was strangled among the weeds and nothing came of it. Some fell on good earth and came up with a flourish, producing a harvest exceeding his wildest dreams.—Mark 4:7–8 (MSG)

As the flowers bloom and gardens burst with bounty, weeds are also thriving, so it makes sense to reflect on your faith. Has anything crept into your life—unhealthy thoughts or habits—that needs weeding out? It’s important to nurture your relationship with God by removing anything that separates you from Him.

Today's Prayer:

Lord, help me clear away all barriers that get in the way of my connection with You.
