Christians should be as persistent as the weeds
For the past few weeks, my wife and I have been spending a great deal of time attempting to eradicate the weeds that continue to grow so prolifically in our flower beds and lawn. I have often said, that considering all of the weeds that all of us have collectively pulled during the past years, weeds should be extinct by now. However, that is not the case.
Have you ever considered that weeds are a lot like sin? As weeds can be found everywhere, so is sin. There isn’t a place on earth where individuals do not sin or are tempted by sin. As with weeds, we as Christians, need to be aware of sin’s presence and do what we can to keep it from ruining our life.
