Growth or Stagnation

As I thought about nature growing, maturing and progressing, I thought about my own Christian life. . Am I growing, progressing and maturing? As the seasons pass we can see the evidence of growth in nature. Can my progress be seen? Am I displaying the fruits of the spirit? Do people witness that I am less selfish, more patient and long-suffering as others are losing their tempers?

Do we really love, especially those people who annoy us or dislike us? Am I settled and comfortable, not reading the Word, praying or mixing with God’s people? So many questions but I trust that the answers are, by the grace of God, I am and I do.
