This morning I am contemplating Luke 8:7 and 14 – the seed scattered among the thorns.
I love flowers and plants. They just make me so happy. But, I’ve tried and failed at growing so many. The countless empty pots at our house and cafe prove this fact. Now, the only flowering plants I own are geraniums. They’re hearty, can withstand the heat and sun, as well as the thorny weeds that threaten them daily. And there are thorny weeds. I don’t know how they get in my second floor balcony pots, but they’re there nonetheless. I’ve scratched my hands more times than I can recount trying to weed these plants without first putting on a pair of gloves.
