Take Care Of Your Own Garden

Take Care Of Your Own Garden…

In the beginning of the Bible, there is a man, a woman, and a garden. It was to be their garden. It wasn’t their neighbor’s garden. There were no neighbors. They were to bear fruit to God.

God also calls you to bear fruit. In Galatians 5 it speaks about the fruit of the Spirit–love, joy, peace, patience, faithfulness, goodness, gentleness and self-control. Keep your life and your walk with God very simple.

You can help your neighbor when they ask and bless them, but your business is your garden. You can’t make your neighbor bear fruit. But you can go over to your neighbor’s house and bless them.

You can bring tomatoes, cucumbers and squash, all the blessings of your garden and give it to them. You are not responsible for their fruit. You are responsible for yours with which you can bless them.

So just make sure your garden is fruitful, full of the fruit of the Spirit. The fruit God called you to bear, that’s your business. The rest is His business.

For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God. Colossians 1:9-10

Don’t focus on the faults of others – focus on your own garden, what you need to do, what is God calling you to bear? Do what you need to do.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,
