Stinking weeds!

Have I publicly expressed my deep hatred of the tree of heaven? It’s the weed tree that is also called stink tree. It grows so fast. I cleared one section of my garden two weeks ago. Not a tree left standing. Now two weeks later we have close to a hundred some as tall as 5’.

Imagine if we could grow carrots or broccoli or pine trees that fast?!

I think they are spawning from the mother tree which was cut way back but not cut out.

To put a spiritual spin on this, it’s a picture of a bad behavior that we cut back on but don’t uproot. Sin will sprout from the roots of behavior we just “cut back on”.

I hate the trees. I want to do whatever I have to do to destroy them. Do I hate my sin? Do I hate it enough to uproot it and burn the brush pile?

I am a man. I am an older man. I am a husband and a dad and a grandpa. I am a disciple of Jesus. Because I am a disciple of Jesus much of what I write is about him, and I usually end what I write with a question, do you the reader know that Jesus loves you? He does. He loves us all but he loves you specifically. He loves me specifically. What will you do with that information today?
