Thinning the Garden

A common practice in garden is sowing more seeds than we actually have room for, should all of them actually germinate and begin to grow. Seeds don't always prosper and so this is probably a wise method.

However the culling of the baby plants is something I dislike. You have to pick "winners" and "losers" and pinch off or pull the losers. This is easy to do when one is towering above the others but when all are more or less equal then it's a very tricky proposition. I pray for guidance that I am picking the right plant when it comes to these times.

In these dark days the world is full of apostate ideas and heretical nonsense. This was foretold, but as a child raised in these days it's difficult to see until much later in life when we begin to be able to discern truth from falsehood.

Pray that God be the one to "thin" our mental gardens of the less productive ideas and nonsense and lead us solely to the truth.
