Even Weeds Have Flowers!

weeds 2It seems that my neighbor’s weeds find their way into my yard. It would be easier to do nothing. If left alone, however, they would eventually take over the entire yard chocking out my grass. Even with all the watering I do, no matter how nice their flowers look in spring, come summer they turn into stickers. And when they do, you don’t want to walk on the grass, especially barefoot! Bare feet get pricked and shoes and socks become full of stickers that scratch your legs.
Just like those weeds, all sin (aka our drugs of choice) looks and feels good in the short term (Heb. 11:25). Don’t buy what your enemy’s selling! Yes it’s easier to give into the weedy lies now, but they only stick you in the end. It’s worth the fight to weed out the lies in your brain today, so you can enjoy walking on cushy grass tomorrow.
Don’t let the feel good flowers fool you! When the Spirit shows you a lie, nail it with the specific truth He gives you…now!
