New plot of ground

Show the class or family a new plot of ground that has just been dug up and prepared to be planted and ask: If this ground were left alone for a year just like it is right now, what would it look like? Would it have flowers and vegetables or would it have weeds and grass? The new ground represents each one of us. We must actively sow seeds of service, unselfishness, forgiveness, courtesy, kindness and actively dig up and remove the ever-present weeds of contention, selfishness, & pursuit of worldly pleasures. We live in the telestial kingdom, the place where Satan freely roams and influences so we must work hard to stay above those influences, just like the gardener must work hard to have a beautiful flower garden or to grow abundant vegetables.
