Most families have a storage area or garage. In it you’ll find the normal assortment of items… an electric drill, paint brushes, a roll of duct tape or two. None of these are used every day, but when you need one of them, you’re very happy it’s there.
The spiritual journey is similar. Pearls of wisdom come from many directions; some through formal, intentional study, and others simply as a result of life itself. They’re deposited in the secret places of the soul. We draw from those stores and find strength, encouragement, inspiration and the like, and apply them to situations in which we find ourselves at the time.
Jesus said it best, of course. “Every student of Scripture instructed in the kingdom of heaven is like a landowner who brings out of his storeroom what is new and what is old.”
In the coming months I hope to find additional resources for the spiritual garage, don’t you? Let’s discover them together.
