“He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked.”
—1 John 2:6
Let’s imagine for a moment that you planted a beautiful tree in your front yard. It looked great, and you were very happy with it for about a week. Then you thought, “I think it would be better in my backyard.”
So you dig it out, take it to your backyard, and replant it. You really like it there. But another week goes by and you think, “That was a mistake. I should put it back in my front yard again.” And so you do.
Then you change your mind ten more times and keep uprooting and replanting the tree. That tree will eventually die.
