Don’t water the weeds

weeds     “What you feed, grows. What you starve, dies.”
                                                                 ~ Pastor Rusty

Every Monday, I pour the plant food into my water jug. I go around to each of my houseplants and drench them with nutrients. They respond with green leaves and healthy growth (most of the time).

But when I walk around my yard, I don’t water the weeds. I don’t want them to grow; I want them to die.

What am I watering throughout the week?

How do I feed a love for Jesus so it will grow?
And how do I starve a love for self so it will die?

In Sunday’s sermon I was reminded that God wants me to grow. In Him. He gives me gifts to ensure it will happen. Am I open to accepting them? Gifts such as wisdom, knowledge, discernment (1 Corinthians 12:8).

Then through His Spirit I will bear fruit. Of love, joy, peace. Patience, kindness, goodness. Faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Galatians 5:22-23).

So today—and everyday—I want to pour Spirit food into my soul. To be drenched with His Love. So I can glorify Him with healthy growth.

But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.
2 Peter 3:18

Lord,
Please help me grow in grace and in knowledge...of You.
