I was recently listening to Tom Jones the well known Welsh crooner sing his famous song, The Green Green Grass of Home on the radio. It reminded me of the saying that the grass is always greener on the other side. I couldn’t figure it out until I read an interpretation of this maxim which states, “the grass is greener on the other side because we deny watering the lawns on our turf!” That’s quite true. We all want to be somewhere else but we forget that where we are can be the best place to start our ministry. Look around you: Who needs validation? Who needs a cheerful word? Let’s start attending to the patch we’re on today!
1 Thessalonians 5:11
Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.
