Many decades ago, weed did not mean the same thing as it does now. :D
In the seventies, Mom used to weed the grass Saturday afternoons, and I would stay beside her to help. She taught me how to distinguish the weeds from the grass. They looked similar at the start.
When Mom passed away, I would often recall our weeding sessions during Gospels about separating the weeds from the wheat.
It dawned on me that there are also weeds inside us, in our hearts. Our weeds are those that cause us to sin. Like envy, jealousy, greed, lust, sloth, pride, among many others. We need to be able to find ways to control and extinguish these weeds or it could take over our hearts and even maybe our lives.
I found that for me, the only way to do this was to seek Jesus deep in my heart. I lay out my problems (which he already knows) and humbly ask for his guidance and mercy.
And Jesus has never let me down.
