Pulling Weeds

picklesA Pickles cartoon strip had the grandmother asking her husband, “You’re back so soon? I thought you were going out to pull weeds in the garden.”

“Yeah, I was,” he answered. “But I forgot something.”

“What did you forget, your work gloves?”

“No, I forgot how much I hate pulling weeds.”

The Bible says that God expects certain fruit in our lives, such as: love, joy peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control (Galatians 5:22-23). However, the previous verses talk about getting rid of some sinful actions that are part of our human nature. I suppose we could say that if we want to live fruitful lives, we have to weed out some sinful behaviors.

Sometimes we hate pulling weeds, but it has to be done.
