Waves on a Beach And Faith Shared


I recently spent a week at a resort in Mexico.  One morning when we were walking along the beach, on the packed sand closest to the waves, I noticed something interesting. The sand wasn’t really wet looking at all until a wave washed up.  As the wave receded it left a little line which showed where it had reached to and almost as quickly as the wave left, the dark area from wetness disappeared.  While in direct contact with the wave it was wet, but it didn’t last.  I think that is like faith and the body of Christ.  Sure, we can maintain faith when we are away from others of faith.  Many an isolated prisoner has survived through reliance on faith, but without contact, without sharing the faith with others it can dry out.
