Yesterday, I dripped water onto some very dry dirt. I thought it would quickly be absorbed. But instead, it formed beads and ran off.
But finally, slowly dripping more and more water on the same spot, the dirt slowly accepted the water.
Like the dirt, when I hear something I don’t like, I usually resist it.
But, after Jesus repeats Himself, after I allow myself to absorb it, His word changes my life.
Jesus said the truth will set me free. But I suppose it only works when I’m willing to absorb what I don’t like.
