How do we make decisions?  What aspects of our Christian faith can help and guide us to choose wisely?  Here are three points to keep in mind:

  • Inward - the wisdom that already exists in our hearts/minds
  • Outward - the people in my life who offer wise counsel and support
  • Upward - the way we engage our faith to call down wisdom from Heaven

Choices confront us all the time.  When we look in, out, and up we make the best decisions possible - drawing on all the resources that God provides.

Seeds and Weeds are part of every garden.  Seeds require care and attention; weeds are constant presence that require dedicated effort to remove.  

What's true for the garden is also true for our hearts.  There are seeds that we want to grow into fruitful harvests of virtue & spiritual gifts, and their are weeds in the form of sin and temptation that we want to remove.

A garden offers many insights for life and spiritual life:

  • A positive attitude that keeps trying in spite of difficulty
  • Cultivating a variety of skills that are dedicated to getting better
  • Hard work that is expended through labor, energy, and effort

These practical points of gardening can inspire us to apply them to our spiritual lives, that we take the gift of life that we have been given and offer the blessing of our uniqueness opportunities to be a blessing to others.
