Here is my first "Photo of the Day" - a macro shot of a small shrub in my backyard.
While weeding my flower bed, I noticed that as I pulled the weeds out from around the established "good" plants; that the "good plants" held their ground (staying deeply rooted in the ground) because they were mature plants.
Then the scriptures in Matthew chapter 13 came to my mind about the farmer who had sowed good wheat seed in his fields one day, only to find that 'an enemy' had sown weeds in his fields at night. The farmer instructs the workers to leave the weeds until both the weeds and the wheat are fully grown and mature and then pull out the weeds. He tells them if they try to pull the weeds too soon, the wheat plants will come up with the weeds. Once all is established, the weeds will come out and the wheat will stay in.
May we all establish our roots down deep - so when the pulling starts, we won't be uprooted!
