“For lack of wood the fire goes out” (Proverbs 26:20).
If you neglect a campfire it will eventually die out. If schoolwork is neglected, grades will suffer. If a constant emotional investment is not made into a marriage it will eventually lose all of its life and vitality. It is a timeless principle with broad application–some things demand our constant time and attention–and it is nonetheless true in our relationship with Christ. Daily attention to word, walk, and worship are key to stoking the fires of faith.
