There are leaves everywhere. It’s spring and the leaves are falling!
We have laurel oaks in our yard. These are similar to the live oaks. They lose their leaves in the spring. It seems that when the sap rises and new leaves are budding, these oaks give up their old leaves.
There is even a period of time where the old leaves co-exist with the new growth. But their time is limited. They are dead and dying. They will drop away.
And very much like the Spirit-filled life. Paul outlines this in Ephesians 4:22-24. We are to put off the old and to put on the new. It doesn’t all happen at one time. For the rest of my life, I will be putting off the old, and putting on the new.
Some stuff is dead, I just don’t realize it yet. Kind of like the oak tree in my front yard.
Thank you! I was searching for information regarding the tree in my yard that’s shedding leaves at this time and instead got a message regarding my spiritual growth ! Confirmation !
Thanks for stopping by, Mary. I thank you for leaving a comment. Blessings.
