Most stalactites grow very slowly, maybe a few millimeters a year. God’s work also seems to grow slowly at times, too. The first missionaries in an area may face many difficulties sharing the gospel, but if they do not become discouraged but continue to lay a good foundation for the people, a beautiful harvest will result.
And young people face the same challenge. For example, a new subject in school may seem difficult, but if you stick with it, step-by-step, and lay a good foundation, it will result in a very good harvest. And the same is true in our walk with Jesus. Satan will try very hard to discourage us, so that we give up on wanting to be a Christian, but if we stick with it, step-by-step, and trust Jesus to help us all the time, we will one day walk with him in the New Jerusalem!
