Your life is like grass, and the people in your circle of life are either fertilizer or weeds.
Just like grass, your life needs to be maintained to keep the weeds out.
Are the people in your circle of life helping you grow with the word of God, or sucking the life out of you, by the cares of this world?
Keep your life fertilized, or it will turn into weeds.
Mark 4:19 (KJV) – and the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful.
