Top Ten Things I Have Learned from Gardening
While gardening in my backyard the other day, I was reminded about ten essentials to maintaining a healthy and vibrant garden. This list is appropriate for our gardens but even more appropriate for our faith journeys. For those of you with green thumbs, you will appreciate this list. For those of you with a commitment to growing in Christ, you may appreciate this list even more!
10. We really do "reap what we sow." Good seeds bear good fruit.
9. Without rains and storms there is no growth - no fruit is produced.
8. When weeding, be careful! We can't always tell the difference between a nasty weed and a beautiful flower.
7. Deep roots are a good thing. Without them, we'll wither and die.
6. Pruning and trimming, as painful as it seems, actually works to our advantage.
5. In gardening, as in life, cheating does not work. Short-cuts, slipshod efforts, and neglect always show up in the quality of our garden.
4. Like anything worthwhile, beautiful gardens require attention, hard work, and commitment.
3. We cannot rush the harvest. Bearing fruit takes time and patience. Premature fruit is almost always sour.
2. Gardening and growing is a lifetime experience. We can experience growth and beauty until the day we die.
1. Fertilizer happens! In fact, nothing much grows without it.
The next time I look at my garden, I may take a longer look at my faith journey. May you do the same!
