What do you think about - by Alf Chehade
One certainly doesn’t have to try hard to get a good crop of weeds in the garden. They just come, ready or not. A bit of rain, a bit of sun, and before you know it, weeds erupt in an otherwise sweet garden patch. And, if left unaddressed, they grow more and more. In time, they might go to seed, and then really start multiplying at a huge rate. They steal life and health from the useful crop of flowers or vegetables.
It’s best to pull the weeds out while they are small and easy to deal with.
Some peoples’ lives are messed up because “weeds” have taken hold in their heart and then spread to overtake their wellbeing.
Their heart becomes crowded with hurts, disappointments, resentments, jealousies, revenge, lusts, and similar. Those things eventually suck life and health out of a person’s wellbeing.
Proverbs Ch 23 says “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he”.
What you meditate on, works its way out in your daily living. If we meditate on good things, those things also work their way out. Philippians 4:8 tells us to think on things that are true, noble, just, pure, lovely and of good report.
