Owen likens our lives to a garden and our lusts as weeds that choke our graces. “But now let the heart be cleansed by mortification, the weeds of lust constantly and daily rooted up (as they spring daily, nature being their proper soil), let room be made for grace to thrive
and flourish, how will every grace act its part, and be ready for every use and purpose!
