A Verse for Your Tuesday

I ran across this verse in Colossians this morning, and it really stuck with me:

"Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness."
--Colossians 2:7

What beautiful images---deep roots that are necessary for survival and overflowing with thankfulness. I hope this verse is as encouraging to you as it is to me.

I love the last part of the verse and how it talks about "thankfulness." I feel that too often in my life, I am quick to ask for help for others and myself, but do not offer up thanks as often as I do requests.

Thanks for the reminder and the guidance today; it has been a week where a verse like this hits close to home.
