Weed Through Your Life

     I love to garden, or should I say that I love having a garden. Growing anything – vegetable, flowers, or shrubs – is hard work. Not only do you have to prepare the soil and then plant what ever you are going to grow, but you have to maintain it.

The other day, I was struggling to pull some weeds. I had let them go a little longer than I should have and the weeds had grown big – with deep roots. “If I had just done this a few weeks ago then it would have taken no time. Now I’ve let them embed themselves in my garden.”

It made me think that bad habits and things we know we shouldn’t do are a lot like the weeds I was trying to pull. The longer they bad is allowed in our lives, the harder it is to get the bad out.

Thought for the Day: Don’t let the weeds in your life choke out the Word.

Matthew 13:7 (KJV) “And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprang up, and choked them.”

Suggested Reading Matthew 13

Lord, teach me how to have a garden of blessings and not a life full of weeds. Help me to be willing to face them while they are small instead of tackling them when they are out of control.
