A cactus doesn’t require much water to survive. It can survive some of the most oppressive temperatures in the desert. But it could not do it without water. Every living thing requires some form of water and oxygen to live.
The same is true for our souls. In order to survive the oppression that we face every day, we need the Water of the Word. We don’t need to have it all absorbed- I don’t think anyone is capable of that- but we need enough in us to stay hydrated. And I don’t mean a sprinkling of a 5 minute devotion or something that comes across your feed. Be saturated in the Word- soak up the goodness. Because this world will dry you out and give you wrinkles ☺️
