Corruptions: Overcome by Grace

Resource Toolbox

My gardeners were removing a large tree which grew near a wall, and as it would weaken the wall to stub up the roots, it was agreed that the stump should remain in the ground. But how were we to prevent the stump from sprouting, and so disarranging the gravel-walk. The gardener's prescription, was, to cover it with a layer of salt. I mused awhile, and thought that the readiest way to keep down my eversprouting corruptions in future would be to sow them well with the salt of grace. O Lord, help me so to do.
