Matthew 13: 24-25 ” Jesus told them another parable: ‘The Kingdom of Heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field. But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away.’ “

The enemy is sneaky and he won’t come at you with blatant full force lies.  He’ll do his work when you’re apathetic, lazy, distracted… asleep spiritually.  And if you’ve ever planted a garden, you know that as tiny sprouts emerge from the soil it is very difficult to distinguish between what’s weeds and what’s not…until your garden is overtaken and you’re stunned at the mess.  So like those tiny weeds, the enemy will sow seeds of doubt, deception, and discouragement…that may sound like the truth in the beginning…but if allowed to grow, will  eventually choke out all our fruitfulness. (Mark 4:3-8)
