Adding on...

I read a story this week about a child that received a train set as a gift at Christmas. The child was very excited when he opened the box. He could not wait to put the oval track together and connect the cars. Soon the train started going around and around the track. Around and around. Around and around again. Eventually, the child got tired of the same old thing over and over, and started looking for more gifts.
People that really get into model trains and make it a lifelong hobby keep adding more track. The train has to do more than go around and around. They add a little toy depot, then more little buildings to create a town. Soon the garage is full of trains of different scales, and the hobbiest goes to model train conventions.
If we are disciples of Christ, we don't stop when we see what the first gift can do. We want to learn more about add more track. The only way to do this is to spend time seeking what He has for us. It is not boring, it is exciting as He opens up His life to us and we begin to discover His will for us.
