This green plant grows in many fields throughout central North Carolina.
Aren’t the leaves nice and green?
What harm could it possibly do?
Well actually these are tobacco plants and soon enough they will be harvested, dried, cured and processed into umteen tobacco products – cigarettes among them.
Why am I making a big deal about this?
Well because we need to take care of our bodies, and because smoking is harmful to your health.
Lung cancer and other respiratory disorders are caused by smoking.
I remember the harmful effect that tobacco had on my grandfather – who had emphysema.
Take care of your body.
Be careful what you put into it.
Remember 1 Corinthians 6: 19 which reminds us that our bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit.
Take care of your bod and stay away from this green plant…
