During the winter months, with all the snow and cold, you probably notice the icicles that often form on houses, cars, and trees. Bet you didnt think of them having a spiritual lesson embedded in them did you?
Have you ever stopped to consider how they are formed? Have you noticed that the dripping water froze, one drop at a time, until over a period of days, the icicle was a foot long or more. If the water is clean, the icicle remains clear and sparkles brightly in the sunlight; but if the water is ever so slightly muddy, that icicle will be cloudy. The beauty and brilliance will be spoiled.
We should be aware of the droplets of influence we allow to slowly build our lives. After all, Solomon said, The integrity of the upright shall guide them. (Proverbs 11:3)
