I recently read an article about Abiding in Christ in which the writer referred to 2 different kinds of tea drinkers…the “Dippers & the Abiders.”
Dippers are in a hurry, and dip their tea bag repeatedly for several seconds, and then discard it. They are in a hurry to get their tea and move on.
Abiders, put their tea bag in the cup and let it steep…waiting for the full development of flavor.
I happen to love tea & I am definitely one who likes a strong cup. This analogy will be a constant reminder to me to STEEP… remembering not to “grab” a quick word, but to rest in it…listening to the Holy Spirit so that I don’t miss the full development of “flavor”…within God’s perfect revelation.
