It’s finally starting to feel like spring, and humans are not the only ones noticing. That’s right; all the plants are starting to bloom! Unfortunately, so are the weeds. I feel like all I do in the yard anymore is fight the weeds. We have them coming from all corners, and before you blink, they can take over!
I’m not the only one who deals with weeds. The wisdom writers tell us: “One who is wise is cautious and turns away from evil, but a fool is reckless and careless.” – Proverbs 14:16
We have to be careful about being aware of the “weeds” in our lives, that they don’t take over. If we are aware, we can continue to fight back, and lessen them. However, if we chose to ignore it, we may be overcome by it.
Today, spend some time praying through where you might have weeds growing. Where might you need to do some spiritual spring cleaning? Take note of where, and ask God to show you how you can “clean-up” or “lessen” them.
