Bloom Where You Are Planted

Bloom Where You Are Planted

Like plants in a garden, Christians too need to grow.

Overview

The old saying "knee high by the fourth of July" referred to the height of corn and expressed a desired benchmark for the corn's growth rate. The hope was that the various factors needed for growth would be present and effective to the degree that by that time in the season the corn would demonstrate healthy growth, indicated by its being knee high.

As the "branches" of Christ (John 15:5), Christians, too, are expected to grow; indeed, we are commanded to do so. This lesson will examine some of the factors involved in our spiritual growth.
