We have a small swimming pool, the above ground type.
It isn’t much, but it’s work! The wind blows in dust, becoming mud on the bottom.
Leaves and other junk constantly fall into it. And, the bugs. Surface bugs, swimming bugs. And even spiders.
Oh, and let’s not forget the chemicals. Too few and the water is green. Too much and it melts bathing suits (not really). It takes a good bit of attention to have a nice little swimming pool.
My spiritual life is similar: Being a spiritual Christian really takes as much attention.
How much attention am I paying to my relationship with Jesus and his people? I know He’s encouraging me to do better in that department.
