I was outside a moment ago, mowing the lawn and thinking about what message I should display to all my viewers, and I found it-how to mow a lawn.
The way I see it, our lives are all one giant, grassy front yard. When you first have it, it’s cut perfectly- then little tufts of unruly grass crop up out of nowhere- let’s call these little tufts of grass sin. At first, these little patches are mowed over quickly, bringing our lawn back to its original shape. However, when you don’t pay attention to your lawn, the patches come up so fast you can’t keep up with mowing them, until your lawn turns into a yard of weeds, foot tall grass, and dry spots. When your yard gets like this, it’s very easy to feel overwhelmed and powerless, and stop mowing it.
Do you see where I’m going with this?
While many of us are too lazy to do anything about it, some people call in a gardener to help mow everything down for them. That’s where God comes in. All you have to do is call on God to help you mow your lawn, and he’ll come and help! Isn’t that great?
After you call in the gardener, he may give you a little tip book on how to make sure your yard doesn’t EVER become overgrown again. As you can probably tell, this is the Bible. The more often you read and practice what the tip book tells you, the patches of grass are less likely to move in.
We can’t necessarily keep our yards perfect all of the time.
You’ll notice I said that they are less likely to sprout up, because we can’t necessarily keep our yards perfect all of the time. But the gardener will always be on call to help you along the way, and it is up to you whether you heed his advice or not.
