Your soul is host to a number of growing things that take on a life of their own. Some are good, while others, well, not so much. On the good side of this issue, a healthy soul will have things such as peace, patience, and love that are steadily growing within. On the bad side, the soul can also be home to growing problems such as resentment, bitterness, or despair. Our souls catch all that life throws at us, and some of what we catch finds a place in our souls where they take root and begin to grow. Just as good experiences and healthy insight foster positive things to grow within us, bad experiences and poor understanding can cause negative things to also grow. What we then continue to take into our soul determines whether these newly growing moods, feelings, beliefs, or attitudes develop, mature, and eventually become a part of who we are. What is growing within the soul today will determine the health of our soul tomorrow.

This Sunday at Liberty Hill I’ll be talking about caring for the soul, and making sure that we give special care to one thing that ultimately determines what else will grow and develop in our soul. Join us at 9:30 AM for Sunday School, and 10:30 AM for our worship service as we explore “The One Thing.” Oh…and remember to take care of your soul; it’s the only one you’ve got!

Grace Received,

Pastor Joe Payne
