Do you know where people grow?
They grow where they are loved.
It’s common sense, if you think about it.
Understand: People want to feel at home.
To the extent that we can foster this warmth in our homes and churches and places of work, I believe, people will gladly stay.
People don’t grow where they’re planted; they grow where they’re loved. Knowing things about the Bible is terrific. But I’d trade in a dozen Bible studies for a bucket full of acceptance—and truth
betold, so would everyone around us.
