Plant Your Own Garden

We are infected with "fruit inspectors", those who judge the worthiness of others by their "personal holiness" instead of their effect on the emerging kingdom of God.

If you examine "fruit inspectors" in government you will find this in common:

1. They do not, themselves, own a farm.

2. They are too busy, anyway, inspecting fruit to actually grow any.

3. They know only bureaucracy and rules, and wouldn't recognize good fruit if the saw it without their rule book.

4. They generally impede and delay the real farmers from tending their crops.

It is much more important to plant a garden than criticize the garden of others.
