Climbing to the top takes time. It’s a step-by-step effort. So it is with spiritual growth; one foot in front of the other.
“Wisdom is built layer by layer. Like a varnished table, its depth comes from dozens of thin coverings. After each coat has been meticulously applied, the table becomes almost translucent. The depth looks haunting, giving you the illusion that you could reach through and touch the grain of the wood. That kind of transparency and sheen doesn’t come with one thick pour but rather through layer upon layer of applied coats.
Wisdom is built in the same way. So is solid character that will stand the tests of time. You can’t get a shot or take a pill for it. You grow into it day by day, step by step, word by word. It comes only through consistency, and it yields its deepest gems only to those not in a hurry for a quick fix.” ~Pastor Wayne Cordiero, The Divine Mentor, p. 118.
