Have you ever considered the notion of soul tending?
Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul. (3 John 1:2 ESV)
While many of us have a clear notion of what it means to:
- Maintain an automobile: regular oil changes, new tires, and factory maintenance
- Maintain our bodies: a healthy diet, regular exercise, vitamins, hiring a personal trainer
- Maintain our homes: regular repairs or hiring a handy man (or woman), working in the yard, creating a weekly cleaning schedule, and more.
Are we taking good care of our souls? How do we, in the words of John make sure it goes well with our soul? What does good soul maintenance even look like?
What do you think?
