"so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God." Ephesians 3:17
Good morning to all of my wonderful Brothas and Sistas,
I was gazing across the room in deep thought about my family when my eyes were drawn to a potted plant in my living room. This wasn’t the first time that this plant caught my attention. Actually it was about the fourth time. The plant in-and-of-itself was just an ordinary house plant. The kind that grows long vines, that seem to take over the space.
This particular morning, I was going about my routine and part of the routine included watering the plant. I did and thought nothing else about it, until about an hour later, while in deep thought about my family I happened (I’m sure by divine intervention) to look over at that one and only living plant, to notice the water droplets hanging from the very tips of the leaves.
Brothas and Sistas, every time I see this it just fascinates me and immediately makes me stand in awe of God. It reminds me that, “He is the vine and we are the branches” (John 15:5, NIV). Before I repositioned the plant it was located on my coffee table, but it had grown so big, and so long that I had to move it to its own space. Before I moved it I would always notice that about an hour after I watered it there would be little, crystal clear, water droplets hanging from the tips of each leaf.
The first time I noticed it God spoke to me and said, “Take notice that it doesn’t matter how far the leaves extend away from the root; every leaf is well watered.”
The leaves closest to the root had droplets of water on the tips of the leaves and the parts of the plant that had extended six feet away from the root, still had droplets of water hanging from the tips of its leaves. As long as it was connected to the root; leaf distance from the root didn’t affect the roots ability to provide for the leaves. Every leaf was well watered.
Brothas and Sistas, families are like this plant. There are many members (leaves), but one God (Root). And as long as we remain connected to the Root (God), we will remain connected as a family; regardless of how far apart we are. The families’ nourishment comes from its root system, and if that root system is rotten (unrighteous), then the leaves are void of nourishment, and they will wither and die.
Brothas and Sistas, let’s pray that our families will, “be rooted and grounded in love” (Ephesians 3:17, NIV). Then we will be well watered, well nourished, and flourishing families in Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen.

We thank you for a fresh new week with a fresh new start. Lord, we praise you that we can be rooted and established in love. We pray that our wonderful Brothas and Sistas and their families to stay connected to the root which is you, Lord. Allow them to cling to your word so that they may prosper in all things and more importantly, grow spiritually. We pray all these things in your most amazing name, Jesus. Amen.
