What are you planting?
Yesterday I was listening to a Dave Ramsey podcast and I had to pull over on the side of the road to take notes. Side note, following the ‘Baby Steps’ is worth it, ‘living like no one else’ is awesome!
So Dave Ramsey challenged me with this:
Think about what you are planting; are you planting good seed? Are you weeding the garden or allowing the weeds of greed, pornography or addiction to grow?
If you don’t plant anything, if you pray but don’t do the hard work, then even when God rains his blessings down on you, there will be nothing but dirt! Because you didn’t work the ground, you didn’t plant the seeds.
Rain makes weeds and seeds grow. So, if we don’t weed our garden, when God pours his blessing out on us, the weeds will only get bigger.
Work hard, weed the garden, plant the seeds and pray for God to rain his blessings out. Then good things will grow.
