My yard has dandelions. Like crazy. They showed up again early this spring. So I treated for them. Used some weed killing granules. Applied. Waited. Hoped. Only to be disappointed. Didn’t take.
Next I tried some DIY environmentally friendly mixture on a few of the weeds. Waited to see if it would work. It did. It worked too well. Killed everything. Good thing I only sprayed a few weeds.
Back to the drawing board, I did some research and chose another spray. Applied about half the yard and waited expectantly. This had to work! Next day I had to leave town. I returned home to not fewer but more dandelions!
The whole process reminded me of something my friend, Ron pointed out a couple weeks ago. Weeds are like sin and brokenness.
- Sin, like weeds, increases if left unchecked.
- Sin, like weeds, must be addressed in the right way.
- Sin, like weeds, can seem colorful, even beautiful, but is ultimately destructive.
- Sin, like weeds, must be diligently guarded against.
No doubt we could keep going. In fact, feel free to comment with other parallels. For me, I’ll keep working on my weeds.
