“He who guards his mouth keeps his life, but he who opens wide his lips comes to ruin.”
(Proverbs 13:3, AMP)
We so often read and quote; “life and death are in the power of the tongue.” Words are seeds. As some of us might be contemplating spring/summer gardens and dreaming of a fresh picked “Big Boy” tomatoe sandwich with real mayo wonder if we planted a weed hoping for a tomatoe? Or, we planted a big juicy plant hoping for its fruit but forgot to water and care for so what did we get?
The mouth seems to be fertile soil for the fruit of life. How much time have I invested in my mouth garden? What are the nuritients in the soil that were produced by my thoughts? My actions are the fruit of my garden. What fruit has filled my basket? Dosen’t a farmer/gardener receive its first fruits? 2 Timothy 2:6 says; “The hardworking farmer should be the first to receive a share of the crops.”
How are things in my life garden today? Maybe I should employ a little weed killer (repentance brand) and get back on track with a flourishing garden by using the right method of Holy Spirit skills and replant by revisiting words, thoughts and actions that will produce the dream life. A juicy big red sliced tomatoe that covers my bread and rich Kraft’s mayo with salt and pepper that delights the palate and satisfies the inner man! Soul Food is good for my soul!
Hope you are enjoying your garden!
