CWAA CHARACTER VALUE FOR JUNE: During the month of June we are focusing on the character of God – Patience. “Let your patience show itself perfectly in what you do. Then you will be perfect and complete. You will have everything you need.” James 1:4

“Listen! A farmer went out to plant some seeds. As he scattered them across his field, some seeds fell on a footpath, and the birds came and ate them. Other seeds fell on shallow soil with underlying rock. The seeds sprouted quickly because the soil was shallow. But the plants soon wilted under the hot sun, and since they didn’t have deep roots, they died. Other seeds fell among thorns that grew up and choked out the tender plants. Still other seeds fell on fertile soil, and they produced a crop that was thirty, sixty, and even a hundred times as much as had been planted!” (Matthew 13:3b-8 NLT).
It is great when our students show that their lives are like the fertile soil – receptive to God’s word! On Friday evening a number of people in our school and church family came together to witness four of our CWAA students get baptized. It was great to be a part of the experience as Riley, Sarah, Greg and Frazer committed their lives to Jesus through baptism!
What kind of soil makes up my life and your life? Are our hearts and minds like the soil of a packed footpath? Shallow rocky soil? Thorny soil? I hope that our lives are like the fertile soil through the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives!
