Like plants, we want to blossom and show the world how beautiful we are. We want to become high and mighty.
We want to reach so high that when people look into the crowd, we easily standout.
But big trees have very strong roots. Without the roots, they won’t stand the test of time.
They’ll fall, or wither, or die.
Focus on being grounded in something. Do your work well. That way, there’ll be no need to engineer the growth that comes with fame or distinction. It’ll just happen. Proverbs 22:29.
