Then the Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it. – Genesis 2:15 NKJV
I have never been much of a gardener. I have seasonal allergies, so spending too much time outside can cause me to sneeze all day.
However, the other day I was in my yard and noticed some purple flowers on a plant close to the house. Many dead leaves made the flowers hard to see, but I zoomed in and appreciated how lovely the flowers were.
Yesterday, allergies notwithstanding, I weeded around the flowers, and I was surprised how much of the plant wasn’t dead.
Jesus removes the weeds around us so that we shine brighter. Amen.
