Working in the garden, weeding and planting is such a pleasant escape. It's a time of prayer and meditation, also. The bible mentions planting, sowing, weeds, soils, reaping and harvest, quite a bit. Every time I go out to garden, I can learn a biblical lesson. Like now when the seedlings are coming up along with the quackgrass. I need to let the weeds and the seedliings grow until the seedlings are strong enough and then I can pull the weeds. In the word, Matthew 13:24-30, Jesus talks about the tares growing with the wheat. He says to let them grow together until the harvest when the tares shall be thrown into the fire. The tares being sown in by the enemy.
I thought that maybe it would be interesting to hear what kind of biblical truths others discover in the garden..."and you shall eat the herb of the field. In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread..."Gen.3:19 I thought maybe a contest, but I know that I'm not qualified to judge this. So...I have notecards that I make from homemade paper I'd like to send to anyone who'd like to post or comment. Thanks.
