Weeds have roots. Lots of roots. I can verify this - I have been weeding my garden. There are more weeds than plants we want to keep. We’ve neglected it a bit, but it feels so good to get out and clear the unwanted stuff out the way.
The kids want to help. We show them what to do. Most importantly we tell them to make sure they get the roots. If they don’t, the weeds will just be back quicker than ever. The whole process will have to start over.
Troubles have roots. You can’t deal with an issue by just getting rid of the bit you can see. Lurking underground are the roots, just waiting to sprout again. Sometimes it takes several attempts to get them all out. Persistence is the key. A willingness to keep coming back until it’s all gone.
The good plants have roots too. If you break them, the plant suffers. Roots are important.
Eph 3:17 Then Christ will live in you through faith. I also pray that love may be the ground into which you sink your roots and on which you have your foundation. (GW)
