Too Much of a Good Thing

This is what our hanging baskets on the outside of our porch looked like this past weekend before I fertilized them.

Several days later, here is the result:

I guess I over-fertilized.

Fertilizer is a good thing but when there is too much of it, it can have an ill-effect. This is true with a lot of "good" things in our lives. When we do too much of it it can actually be harmful.

Reading the Bible is certainly something we should do. It truly is our owners manual for life. Going to church is also good as we are able to support and build up others. But if all we did was read our Bibles and go to church, how could we impact those who need God?

Jesus was a great example of this. He knew the Word, but more importantly, He DID the Word. He actually did life with others, where they were. Through this He changed the world!
