So I was gardening again today… to tell the truth, it’s slightly addicting. It’s kinda predictable, and mindless, and just different from what I do… so I slip out to check out the garden and end up being out there doing various garden for a half hour or more!
Well today I noticed that weeds are not only abundant… they are tricky. They actually seem to match the plants that are around them. In stature, in leaf type… it’s crazy! To the point where it is so hard to tell where the weed ends and the good plant begins and vice versa. Next to the cucumber vines was a weed sprawled throughout them that was a vine and looked like a cucumber plant, until I took a closer look. Interspersed between tomato plants was a tall thin leafy plant… JUST LIKE A TOMATO PLANT.
OK, so… I thought that was pretty weird.
It’s just like sin. It looks just like the real thing… a lot! But it’s a WEED, bent on sucking the life out of the good plant and robbing it of all the nutrients in it’s soil, of the sunlight it needs, of the water it needs…
And it’s worthless. The good plant produces (or is) fruit… food…. the weed is just ugly. (Though sometimes deceptively beautiful on the outside… it’s worthless ultimately)
So be careful of the weeds in your life. Take time to examine the stuff around you and make sure it’s the plants you want… not the weed look-alikes….
