Thistles and thorns have their purposes, but not on a farm. Farms are for cucumbers, pumpkins, wheat, and barley.
The farmers of America’s political and religious systems seem like they haven’t figured this out.
It’s not that American’s wanted thistle fields, they’ve just planted thistles expecting watermelon. Sooner or later, Americans will learn whatever comes up from the ground at harvest grows from whatever went into the ground that spring.
The lesson of sowing and reaping is more important than just reaping what our fathers sowed. The more weeds that we planted that sprout, the better. So, don’t be worried.
