risk everything
Interestingly, koi, when put in a fish bowl, will only grow up to three inches. When this same fish is placed in a large tank, it will grow to about nine inches long. In a pond koi can reach lengths of eighteen inches. Amazingly, when placed in a lake, koi can grow to three feet long. The metaphor is obvious.

Wow! I never knew that about Koi but I can certainly relate when it comes to Christians. Environment is everything! So many times I see modern Christianity like a zoo with well cared for well behaved animals....this is so unnatural for our species! We were made in Christ to be free, free to roam His kingdom, to soar in His Spirit. Knowing Him in a way that no caged zoo animal ever can! Hallelujah!
