Weed up the Garden



There are at least two things about which we should never worry. First, the things we cannot help. If we cannot help them, worrying is certainly foolish and useless. Secondly, the things we can help; if we can help them, let us set about it and not weaken our powers by worry. After all, there is the Providence of God.


See how he saved the future of the human race by saving Noah, even when God's justice compelled him to punish humanity with a devastating flood. God always provides; therefore, we must weed our garden, and pluck up the smallest roots of worry; if we let them get a start, they will crowd out all the beautiful things that ought to grow in our heart.


But let us remember that the ultimate goal of God's providence is the return of humankind back to its final home. This means, for the sake of a spiritual good, God many allow us to suffer at times from want of even some essential materials needs. At those moments, we must not get very anxious as the disciples of Christ who became very worried over a short supply of bread, even after having witnessed a miracle of the multiplication of loaves by Christ. At times of want, we need to remember that whoever falls from God's right hand is caught into his left.


"The end of all things is at hand; therefore, be self-controlled and sober minded for the sake of your prayers."
1 Peter 4:7
