The jade plant in our living room began leaning badly from its own weight. I trimmed some of the thick, heavy leaves from the branches, and tied the leaning branches to tall stakes I put in the pot.
Jade plants are notoriously slow growers. But they do need regular care, and at certain seasons of their lives they need special attention. But what a beautiful plant it becomes!
The Lord Jesus knows where we are in our spiritual growth, and knows exactly what we need and when. Like the jade plant, we also need to be trimmed and supported. What is he trying to trim from your life right now? What areas of your life need support from others right now?
