Plant a Spiritual Garden of Joy Today


Plant 5 rows of Peas:  Prayer, Perseverance, Politeness, Promptness, and Purity

Plant 3 rows of Squash:  Squash gossip, squash criticism, squash indifference

Plant 5 rows of Lettuce:  Let us be faithful to duty, let us be unselfish, let us be truthful, let us follow Christ, let us love one another

No garden is complete without Turnips:  Turn up for church; turn up with a smile; turn up with new ideas; turn up with determination to make everything count for something good and worthwhile.


Is there anything you need to plant in your spiritual garden?  If there is, ask the Father what you specifically need to work on in your life. 

Do you need to spend more time with Him?

Do you need to love others better?

Do you need to apologize to someone?

Do you need to reach out more to someone?

Do you need to “give” to your church or to other people in some way? 

Do you need to NOT give so much to the church right now (or to other people)?

Do you need to listen better?

Do you need to wait on the Lord for something?

There are tons of questions you could consider as God shows you how to plant a better spiritual garden.
