A Flower Box Lesson

For you to see my point in this pic, let me explain. 

Our sunflowers are spindly. More than I think they should be. Anyway a week or more ago I noticed one had fallen over; a pretty severe bend in its stalk but I decided to leave it rather than pulling it up. Good move! 🙂

Notice its fall was cushioned by a friend. And notice too resting there with its friend it began reaching for the sun. It’s green again, putting on leaves and I do believe it just may bloom!

I see two parallels, perhaps you see others.

One. When we fall down, look to the Son right where we are and begin to grow again. 

Two.  Be a friend. Comfort the fallen. Lend them strength. Encourage them in JESUS. Help them look up and begin to grow again.  And won’t you be so blessed when they bloom?! 

Ecclesiastes 4:10  (NIV) 10 If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. source

The LORD our GOD is holy
