Garden Allegory

Was pottering around the garden earlier. After a week away, a little tidying was needed. The plants needed a few things:
a) Pruning – so as to be more productive
b) Checking for pests/diseases – so as to be healthy
c) Adding supports – so flower heads are lifted from the dirt

Found myself reflecting that we, as God’s children, need much the same thing; to know where to direct our energies; cleansing from the things we do wrong and from that which harms us; also to have support and someone to lift our heads at times.

Do you agree?

  1. Yes. I miss having my own garden so much, I always felt really close to God there. My own favourite analogy was the compost (taking dead things and bringing new life). I think I got a bit zealous about it 😀 (I had such lovely compost).
