One little sin, what harm can it do?

Give it free reign and soon there are two.

Then sinful deeds and habits ensue

Guard well your thoughts, lest they control you...

The garden of our heart needs constant weeding and care...

Along with the practical instruction about diligence in work, I find an application for the care of my soul. The thistles of self-interest grow naturally within me, while the fruit that pleases God requires constant weeding and watering through prayer, confession, and obedience to the Lord. Without these, the soil of my heart will become choked with the thorns of trivial pursuits and greed.
