I was born and raised in the south. If you live in the south, then I’m sure you know something about Kudzu. If you don’t understand or know what kudzu is, I will explain.
Kudzu is a perennial vine native to Southeast Asia. It was introduced to the United States in 1876 and was widely marketed to be an ornamental plant. It is a serious invasive plant that has been spreading at the rate of 150,000 acres annually. Once established in a habitat, kudzu is able to grow very quickly. In fact, it will grow 60 feet per season or about one foot per day. It is better known as “the vine that ate the South”.
Kudzu leaves have a paraheliotropic movement; meaning that they move in response to the movement of the sun and grows and climbs in order to reach the light.
Control and removal methods; mechanical, chemical and biological has been virtually futile. With an economic impact of: $100-500 million forest productivity lost per year; it takes about $5,000 per 2.5 acre per year to control it; and it cost the power companies about $1.5 million per year to repair damage power lines. Kudzu management is of great concern in the southeast.
I hope you see where I am going with this. What would the world be like if we became Kudzu Christians?...Spreading the gospel so fast that we couldn’t be controlled; continually growing toward the light (Son); taking over and transforming everything in our path for Christ; and winning souls for the kingdom daily. WOW wouldn’t that be amazing?
