A woman stood in front of a fertile piece of land. She had 2 packets, one had seeds and one had weeds. She had to decide what seeds she would sow. The packets of seeds were ones of peace, joy, love for all, patience, long suffering, charity, prayer, faith, forgiveness, grace, humility, truth and obedience. The packet of weeds were ones of discontent, anger, hate, envy, greed, doubt, fear, gossip, entitlement, chaos, and deceit.
In thoughtful decision she decided on the seeds and not weeds. The weeds could only grow to overtake and kill off anything good that might grow in her garden, so she quickly threw that packet into the trough for the swine to gorge themselves on.
She planted each seed and every day she would go out to tend to her garden and she watered each seedling with tears of gratitude until it was time to reap what she had sown. She did and when she was done, she realized she had created a beautiful exquisite bouquet that was fit to present to the Master Gardner.
So it is with life our thoughts dictate what we want to create. As long as those seeds planted in our minds that Satan puts there stays in our minds they can’t grow and will eventually get thrown into the mental compost bin. It isn’t until we utter them either by speaking them or acting on them that they become weeds to destroy the beauty of we can have.
Decide on what you want to create and give to the Master Gardner then go and sow.
Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.
