Has there ever been a time in your life that you discovered that ” bad seeds ” had been planted about you ? Did you notice that weeds were growing in your beautiful garden and you wondered why ?
Those seeds were sprouting before you knew it and you were caught standing fighting the ramifications of it . The words said about you were untruths or made up out of bitterness and were fed by gossip ..
Did you find yourself fighting those weeds that you forgot about your garden ? Your garden that was once beautiful with blooms that magnified your life , is now turning into a neglected piece of ground that has stopped producing growth ..
In another words we find that the effects of the gossip hurting our joy in life . We become consumed trying to fix it and it can cause bitterness and hard feelings..
I think we all have had moments as these .. They are hard and they hurt . Especially if they come from those we know ..
Things we need to make sure we don’t do . We don’t plant bad seed for bad seed . GOD will weed our garden . Judgment and vengeance is not ours to hand out ..
Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord.
We know that those will reap what the sow , don’t forget we will too .. The repaying of evil for evil does nothing but cause harm .
Instead pray for those , ask for blessing to fall upon them.
28 Bless those who curse you. Pray for those who hurt you.
God will handle the weeding of the bad seeds planted in his time , which is perfect . He knows the hurt and he also knows the truth . We need to trust in that .
Focus on what was once our beautiful garden and feed it with the love and faith in Jesus . It will grow and grow , and the harvest you receive will be the blessings from God.
As far as the weeds , they are exactly that . They will die off and be forgotten . When that happens , you know the Lord has done his work.. He destroyed the bad seeds that were once planted …
