Today, while walking my neighborhood with my camera, I passed a fertile wonderful garden spot that was totally neglected this year. All the plants were in disarray. My heart was heavy - I knew the elderly gentlemen had been sick. I knew the family was now gone and no one was left who cared.
Then I realized how much I wanted the rhubarb. It was not mine to take so I just walked away. It would go to waste.
I wonder how God feels when He looks at us - when we neglect our relationship with Him. We have so much potential in Him; did we quit caring? Because we ignore Him, does he walk away, feeling like so much is going to waste?
