Man is like grass
Psalms 102:15,16 - As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth. For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more.
It is very difficult for many to realize that the whole of creation, the millions and billions of people were created for the processing of the fraction amount of people, who are the people of God.
Although God has created all mankind yet all mankind is not His children. Even some of those who take His Name have been called by Jesus as children of Satan.
All people are like grass no doubt God has a purpose for them in creation but at the end they will be cut out and put to fire and forgotten forever. These people may seem good and godly according to this world but like the flowers of the grass do not bear fruit but just bloom and perish also will they.
But the people of God are not like grass they are the ones who have fruit bearing seed in them, when they hear the Gospel these seed die and bear fruit. God is the Husband of this garden and His eyes are focused on those trees which bear fruit. Lots of other plantation also exist in this garden but they do not count for this garden is an temporary garden and only the fruit bearing plants will be one day transplanted in to Heavenly permanent garden wherein they will never lack or die.
The big trees do not need the grass and herbs much but the small plants which are growing into trees do rely to some extend on them or need to overcome them as hurdles to become strong rooted trees.
In the latter days we will see more of fruit bearing trees coming up unlike ever before.
