The purpose of flowers is to attract pollinators. They are fun to find and take pictures of as I hike.
In my devotions today I was reading and meditating on church leadership. Some leaders seem to try to be flowers to attract people to come to their meetings. They preach flowery sermons to tickle peoples ears. 2 Timothy 4:3 In this process they neglect to tell the people the hard truths of life.
Our politicians seem to be doing the same thing. They get elected by promising goodies but fail to make the hard decisions of leadership.
Father, I want to follow You and walk in truth and not deception. Thank you for Your guidance.
