AMONG THE WEEDS
Flowers may grow among the weeds, but this in no way distracts from the beauty of the flowers.
As we are born in sin and live in sin, this in no way means that we have to be condemned because of sin.
We have an advocate who can and has cleansed us of our sins, Jesus Christ, the Son of God came to earth so that you and I might be freed from the bondage of sin and have eternal life.
As the flowers have beauty of themselves, so can we achieve beauty of the soul through our devotion to our creator, God.
As the flowers are rooted deep in the earth and are nourished by the soil, so can we be rooted deep in the word of God and be nourished by His unfailing love.
In the spring the flowers take on new life and display their beauty for all to see, when we are born again we too take on a new life and display this new life by the way that we conducts ourselves.
Though we are of more value than the flowers, we were both created by God and for His pleasure we were created
