Rootedness

To be deeply rooted in the soil of the past makes life harder, but it also makes it richer and vigorous.

That depends on what's in that soil... bitterness, resentment, unforgiveness. Sometimes it's just better to clean it off your shoes and move on.

Sometimes God just tells us we must remove ourselves from evil situations/people. They do nothing but drag us down. Many people feel they have to remove themselves from the evils of the world. I agree, but we must be alert. Evil lurks where we least expect to find it.
