I waited too long.  I waited to see if my husband would have time to work with me outside in the yard.  I waited to see if my grandkids would come over to help me.  I waited for the weather to be nicer.  I waited because I was too busy doing other things.

Finally two months later, I  dug weeds and planted my sunflower seeds.  I watered them every day.  My husband said they wouldn’t grow, but soon the little leaves popped up and I was so smug.  They grew a few inches, then a foot, now almost three feet high.

That’s when I noticed other sunflowers were six feet high and blooming beautifully.  I went outside and saw that actually, my little plants were starting to die.  Leaves withering and stalks bent over pitifully.

I waited too long.

There’s a spiritual application here.  Don’t wait too long to find Jesus.  Don’t wait too long to share Jesus.  Don’t wait too long… might be too late.
