Jeremiah 4:3 says, “…break up your fallow ground, and do not sow among thorns.” We know what thorns do from Mark 4:19. Thorns choke the word sown and make it unfruitful. Thorns are the cares of this world, deceitfulness of riches, and the desire for other things.
I thought about my vetch weed that is taking over my front bed. I pulled some of it out, but it multiplied. It is an invasive weed.
Weed thoughts choke our meditation and make it unfruitful.
it is true – I have to keep putting other thoughts out of my mind when I meditate…especially in the middle of the night. I want to think about OTHER THINGS because I am awake.
As we keep sowing His word in our hearts through meditation, it will increase our fruits of righteousness. Our thoughts will line up with His thoughts.
