Sunday Verses

Devotional About Keeping Alert
Happy Sunday! I have spent many hours this spring working on finally creating a flower bed full of perennials. I have weeded this area many times in the past, but never fully finished it. Now that it is completed, I am trying my best to stay on top of the prolific weed growth. I never quite understand how they can grow and spread so quickly and I get frustrated that even one week of neglect leads to extra work. But, when I weed every day or two, the job seems easier. We all have weaknesses and "ugly" areas of our life that aren't a problem or issue as long as we are alert and pay attention to them regularly. It is when we ignore them, deny them, or leave them unchecked that they become a problem. This verse seems a little scary or threatening, but really it is simply telling us to recognize and be aware of those things that keep us from loving and taking care of each other. When we are regularly looking at how we might be falling short of Jesus's command to love God and others, we can more easily correct or change it. A daily (hourly) heart check keeps us attentive and aware.
