An excerpt from this book:
Once you leave the place God has chosen for you, your root system begins to dwarf. The next time it will be easier for you to flee from adversity because you have been careful not to root yourself deeply. You end up coming to the place where you have little or no strength to endure hardship or persecution.
You then become a spiritual vagabond, wandering from place to place, suspicious and afraid that others will mistreat you. Crippled and hindered in your abilitiy to produce true spiritual fruit, you struggle in a self-centered life, eating the remains of the fruit of others.
Thought-provoking, yes? What do you think? True?? Or not??
