Weed-free garden tips

August 1, 2017

A master gardener told me once that the best way to keep weeds from your garden is to fill the garden with healthy plants. If you keep the flowers and vegetables growing and strong, then there won’t be any room or nutrients for the weeds.

The same is true with our spiritual life.

If we keep our minds full of God’s Word, we won’t have time, energy, or desire to fill them with sinful thoughts.

I have stored up your word in my heart,
    that I might not sin against you (Psalm 119:11).

If we keep our hands busy doing good things, we won’t have time, energy, or desire to busy ourselves with sinful actions.

For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another (Galatians 5:13).

If we surround ourselves with godly examples, we won’t have time, energy, or desire to follow others in sinful actions.

Blessed is the man
    who walks not in the counsel of the wicked,
nor stands in the way of sinners,
    nor sits in the seat of scoffers;
but his delight is in the law of the Lord,
    and on his law he meditates day and night (Psalm 1:1-2).

How does your garden look today?
