Stop Walking and Weeds Creep In

weed whackedThis photo might not look like much, but it paints a terrible picture. Before the latest Southern California real estate crash, the owners of this land were preparing the ground to build new homes. It was left abandoned after the crash and weeds and trees grew throughout this parcel. You could barely see any of the grading that had been done. Now, the economy is ready for them to start building, which meant they had to first take the time and money to clear the land back to the earlier point. This is what you’re now looking at in the photo.
The terrible picture for you and me is this: If we stop going forward in our walks with Jesus because life gets tough, weed thoughts will enter our brains and take root. These new thoughts can not only mask the good stuff that had been produced in your life, but can also take you more time and effort to uproot them later just to get back to where you were!
I’m not saying that grace and mercy cease. What I am saying is what Paul wrote in Galatians 6:7, we reap what we sow. We live in a fallen world that desires to plant weeds in our minds. If we stop walking with the Spirit, those seeds will get into our brains. If left unchecked by a continual stagnant life, those seeds will grow into weeds that will later have to be removed if we want to further get closer to Jesus.
The moral of this story is this: We may not control the world around us, but we can control the world within. Let’s save ourselves headaches tomorrow, by walking with Jesus today.
