7 What keeps us from having a beautiful garden? Lack of water Weeds

9 We need life-giving water Lack of the water of salvation. Jesus said,Whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life. John 4:14

10 We need to pull weeds

11 Weeds need to be pulled when they are small and the ground is soft Teach me while my heart is tender; Tell me all that I should know And even through the years I will remember No matter where I go!

14 I Corinthians 13:4-8 Love never gives up. Love cares more for others than for self. Love doesn't want what it doesn't have. Love doesn't strut, Doesn't have a swelled head, Doesn't force itself on others, Isn't always "me first," Doesn't fly off the handle,

15 Doesn't keep score of the sins of others, Doesn't revel when others grovel, Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth, Puts up with anything, Trusts God always, Always looks for the best, Never looks back, But keeps going to the end.

16 The Weed of SELFFISHNESS Love cares more for others than for self. Isn't always "me first."

17 We live in the me generation. Your child is NOT a king or queen.

18 Teach your child how to share Teach your child how to give. Teach your child how to sacrifice for others. Dont reward your child for everything, but give praise when it is due.

19 What about you? Are you sharing with those in need? 852 million people go to bed hungry every night. Every 20 seconds a child dies from a water- related disease

20 THE Weed of ENVY Love doesn't want what it doesn't have. Love doesnt envy. Teach your child to be content with what he has. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. Philippians 4:11-12 Godliness with contentment is great gain. I Timothy 6:6

21 Our economy is built on envy. Dont give in to, I want what she has!

22 The Weed of PRIDE Love doesn't strut, Doesn't have a swelled head,

23 Doesn't keep score of the sins of others, Always looks for the best

24 Evil Romans 9:12b 9 Chinese Standard Bible (Simplified) 9 CNT-Easy-to-Read Version 9 Hate what is wrong. NLT 9 Abhor what is evil NAS 9 hate what is evil [loathe all ungodliness, turn in horror from wickedness]. Amplified 9 Hate everything that is evil CEV 9 Let us have a genuine break with evil JB Philips 9 Run for dear life from evil; The Message 9 Hate what is evil. NIrV

25 What causes a seemingly innocent child to grow up to be an evil man?

26 Foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child. Proverbs 22:15 Children do not know how to judge right and wrong. They must be trained.

27 Be diligent about: Books Movies Friends Teachers

28 You must be actively involved in your childs life Ask questions. Keep asking questions.

29 Read the books they are reading. Watch the movies they watch. Invite their friends to your home. Sit in the classroom and visit regularly with their teacher. \

30 GOOD 9 Chinese Standard Bible (Simplified) 9 CNT-Easy-to-Read Version 9 cleave to that which is good. KJV 9 cling to what is good. NIV 9 hold tight to everything that is good. CEV 9 hold fast to what is good.ESV 9 Hold on to what is good. NIrV 9 hold on for dear life to good. The Message 9 Let us have a real devotion to good. JB Philips

31 Teach the Good Daily devotions Bible verses on the walls of your home.

32 The Fruits The Christian life is not simply a list of DO NOTS. It is much more… Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self- control. Model these fruits in your own life, and see them blossom in your childs life.

33 COVER Actually the best way to have a weed-free garden is to prevent them with mulch.

34 Prayer Continue steadfastly in prayer. NIV 12 Be constant in prayer. ESV 12 When you pray, be faithful. NIrV 12 Don't quit in hard times; pray all the harder. The Message

35 17 I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. 18 I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, 19 and his incomparably great power for us who believe.
