This past winter, Bill and I had our front yard landscaped with new flowers and plants. Since Florida is mostly warm and sunny year round, it seems like there’s always something in bloom, including that 5 letter dirty word…weeds. Even if you don’t landscape or have landscaping, you know what a weed is. Dictionary.com describes it as a valueless plant growing wild, especially one that grows on cultivated ground to the exclusion or injury of the desired crop. Did you catch that last part? It’s not just that weeds make your garden look ugly, but if left to their own devices, they can actually cause harm to the good plant. The same can be said about the WEEDS in our own lives. If we are not constantly tending to our thoughts/actions, it’s easy to find ourselves smothered in sin. How do we get rid of our WEEDS? We have to daily die to self and trust the One who is weedless. We will always have WEEDS in our lives, but Christ came so that His perfection, goodness and glory cover our WEEDS so that God sees a beautiful and weedless garden.
