Matthew 15:13 gives a look at how we should “invest” our lives. Although Jesus is referring to the Pharisees, this scripture can easily be applicable to us. Jesus says, “Every plant that my heavenly Father has not planted will be pulled up by the roots.” This challenges me to evaluate how much of my life is invested in “earthly” things? Whatever those “things” are, will someday be pulled up by their roots. What area of your life could easily be pulled up by the roots?
Invest in those things that are eternal and the roots will be well grounded!
