“A life devoted to things is a dead life, a stump; a God-shaped life is a flourishing tree.” ~~King Solomon

King Solomon challenges us to see life as God wants it lived. It is not about the outside, how we look, what we wear or what we eat. It is a dead life. Imagine a stump. It sometimes looks OK but just kick it. It evaporates into dust.

We want to have a fruitful life. Let God shape it and that is the key.

“A life devoted to things is a dead life, a stump; a God-shaped life is a flourishing tree.” ~~King Solomon (Proverbs 11:28)

    Hey there! I’ve been following your site for a long time now and
    finally got the bravery to go ahead and give you a
    shout out from Austin Tx! Just wanted to tell you keep up the excellent work!

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something which I think I would
    never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me.
    I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to
    get the hang of it!
