Weeds

Yesterday, my kids and I did some gardening. I wanted to teach them about weeds and plants. While pulling weeds, I suddenly had an insight. The weeds in our garden were so many already since I didn't pay much attention to our garden for quite some time. Now that I want our garden clean, it is going to take me a long time to remove all of the weeds.

It is the same with sin in our lives. It starts out as a "small" sin. Like refusing to deal with something or someone. Then we allow it to stay in our hearts. After a while, we just realize we have this "big" thing in our hearts. We feel like we are about to explode since we didn't want to deal with it when it was still small, now that it has grown and had taken roots in our heart, it is more difficult to uproot it.

I remember in Hebrews 12:15 it said "See to it that no one misses the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many."

Time to check our hearts if there are any "weeds" or bitter root we need to uproot.

i know what you mean, the longer we put aside the little weeds and not paying any attention to it, before we knew it, it's already a big tall grass that is about to take over our lives and we can't control it anymore.
Nice idea for this blog.
