Was the problem with the soil? No, I think not because other plants were growing there. That left the seeds. Were they bad? I decided to clear the area and start over, then I planted some different seeds. That worked. The little things are thriving.
Jesus compared the heart to soil. Assuming my heart is good soil what am I trying to grow there? Every now and then it is a good idea to check ourselves regarding what seeds we are sowing therein.
For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. Gal 6:8 NKJV
This single verse lets me know that this is a very important principle. Garbage in, garbage out. What have I put in my heart lately? B romance movies? Garbage. Arguments? Garbage. Hatefulness? Garbage. Thoughts of hoarding? Garbage. Im surely in trouble now. What will these things grow to be in my heart? The Word says they will grow into corruption.
So now that I have identified the bad seeds, whats the remedy? First, these seeds must be uprooted and thrown away. I need to repent and start over. These lusts of the flesh must then be renounced and then replaced. I must rather fill my heart with good seeds from Gods Word and prayer, generosity and fellowship with Gods people. I must trust in the Lord with all my heart and lean not to my own understanding. (Proverbs 3:5) What will these seeds produce? Everlasting life!
