Kudzu is like sin.
It takes over faster than you expect.
It is difficult to eradicate.
It may appear dead in some seasons.
It must be killed at the root.
It won't start growing in a healthy environment, like the shade of trees.
But it can easily climb up and swallow everything around it.
I was distressed today as I walked through my tree farm to see how severely the vine has taken over.
And I need to watch out for sin, too. The cross of Jesus takes care of my sin, and he eradicates it from my heart. That is painful, but effective.
I need to find that effective way to kill kudzu.
