What’s the best way to water your lawn?
The American Lawns website recommends 3/4 to 1 inch of water per week, and applying it “as infrequently as possible.”
I’ve known this for some time and have been practicing this summer. We try to limit watering any part of our yard to once per week, and watering deeply enough to soak in. Any expert will tell you that watering this way encourages deep root growth, which makes for a healthier, more drought-resistant lawn.
Since I love making analogies between physical and spiritual things, I wondered this morning, what is the significance of this deep-water metaphor for spirituality?
It makes sense to me that deep watering of our souls would produce deeper, stronger, healthier roots in our lives. But what is the difference between deep and shallow soul-watering? Surely not the difference between daily and weekly devotional time?
Have you been watering your soul deeply enough? If so, what is your method/process? If not, what are you going to do about it?
