Greener On The Other Side?

Finishing up the series of Where Are All The Godly Men? I would like to close with this simple statement.
Sometimes men, we think that the grass is greener on the other side. We see what other people have and something about that just makes us want to pursue those things as well. These are some of the "distractions" we talked about in the first post. But let me strongly caution you when it comes to this kind of thinking...

I think Craig Groeschel said it best when he said, "When the grass is greener on the other side then it is time to water your own yard!"

It is so easy to take the "easy way out" and pursue the things that we think are "quick fixes". When if we only took the time to care for what we already have then there is no reason we can't have the same exact thing others have and have it to the fullest!

God gave each of us many different gifts. He entrusted those gifts to us and placed them in our care... for a reason. We get what we've invested in these gifts. If we've neglected them then obviously they are going to look neglected. If we've invested in them then they will bear fruit.

Continue to do what you've always done and you will continue to get what you've always gotten!

Are you watering your own yard or is the grass on the other side distracting you?
