I grew up in apartment homes. I know nothing of gardening. But I have one plant in my office. This succulent has been down to its final three leaves multiple times since I got it a year ago. Busy working on sermons, sending emails, and checking social media, I forget to water it. I can go days forgetting it’s even there. But it’s resilient. Just a bit of water and sunlight is all it needs to miraculously grow. This stupid plant is a metaphor.
