Adam and Eve ate the fruit from the wrong tree; they were asked not to eat from the tree by Father God. The serpent had deceived them, the trouble with eating the wrong fruit is the seed.
A seed will reproduce if the conditions are perfect for it to do so. Conditions were perfect in the garden that Father God created. When I eat fruit I have the option to plant the seed; if planted it will grow and reproduce through time.
It always produces the same kind. If I plant grape seed I will end up with grapes, through time I will have a vineyard of grapes.
Sometimes I have a dark thought like ‘I am no good at gardening’. I dwell on that thought then continue to examine myself, I can end up thinking that I am good at very little. The thought I had of ‘ not being good at gardening’ has reproduced and now I am no good at lots of things.
I need to uproot the negative thoughts, or seed, and plant new seed. If I list the things that I am good at then, when the thought reproduces, I will be good at lots of things.
I can’t focus on the good things and still dwell on the negative, or dark, thoughts.
Today I will focus on the thought ‘I am the apple of my Father’s eye’.
What are you going to think about today?
Try to focus on a positive statement about yourself in the bible.
