JESUS HAS THE ANSWER
Dear child, since what you propose is focused on revealing and exposing something that is true, it isn’t a grievous error. But as you already sense, it will be sowing the seed of competition and envy in your heart—and trying to outdo your neighbor will yield no more than chasing after the wind.
If you think of your heart as a raised garden bed with clear boundaries, you’ll realize that every weed displaces something your Father prizes. Whether it’s the rose of His love or the lily of His peace or the lettuce of His gentleness or the carrot of His faithfulness, your Father’s seeds bear sweet fruit. Do you really want the bindweed of your grasping, the thorn of your irritability or the thistle of your anger to steal precious resources? No, you want to tend your plot carefully: weeding out what is planted by your lesser nature to better grow the seeds that come from your Father’s higher nature to beautiful fruition.
Do you have a few minutes to welcome My Helper to sow your plot and bring you new seeds? Just close your eyes and let your worries fall away. Think of Me and feel your heart smile. Send Me your joyous, loving feeling in words or with wordless emotion. Feel your spirit lift as the Holy Spirit brings you everything you need to grow a garden of Eden inside your lovely self. —Jesus to the disciples,
Matthew 13:23 NKJV
“But he who received seed on the good ground is he who hears the word and understands it, who indeed bears fruit and produces.”
