In the forest there’s something for all of us. It’s filled with struggles and success. The success grows bigger as well as the weeds. In life we are challenged just as animals are in the forest.
You have the weak sowing, good seeds, but yet taking refuge from the strong and evil. They remain hidden, knowing once captured their roots will be cut off, known as people of little faith.
Then there’s the proud as it grows expanding its trunk, becoming bigger and boastful.
Then there are the ones in the forest with courage, who continue to walk by faith and not by sight. Praying and praying, knowing during its dry seasons the mist from the morning dew will provide moisture needed for survival; waiting on the harvesters to gather the weeds, binding them, casting them into the fire.
Which forest of thoughts is in your mind right now?
Let’s look at the Ant and the Elephant, they’re both strong. The ant can carry more than 10 times its size in weight and the Elephant is the largest land mammal walking the earth with enormous more strength than an ant.
- Is the ant the weakest by being the smallest?
- Is the Elephant the strongest because of its large trunk?
- If the Ant was the same size as the Elephant would it be the strongest?
- If the Elephant was the same size as the Ant, would it be the weakest?
There are many places an Ant can go, the Elephant can’t. Most places an Elephant can go and so can an Ant. Sometime being small has greater advantages than being big. It’s not about the size. It’s about your strength.
Psalm 27:14 (NIV)
Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.
Matthew 13:37 (NIV)
The one who sowed the good seed is the Son of Man. The field is the world, and the good seed stands for the sons of the kingdom. The weeds are the sons of the evil one, and the enemy who sows them is the devil. The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvesters are angels.
When it’s time for the harvest, you must be able to choose the good fruit and turn away from the bad. “Stay connected to the vine”
