From Seed to Tree ~ Trees

Picking peaches is always fun.

Greetings Dear Reader,

Do you really think about trees? Even the fastest-growing tree is a product of years of measured resources. They give us the air we breathe. They produce fruit. We use some for lumber. There are so many things trees give us.

It has been said, “One may count the acorns on an Oak Tree but only God can count the Oak Trees in an acorn.” When we think of the production potential of a tree, the math becomes infinite. The potential reaches to the end of time and possibly beyond.

Simply it is the same way for humans. Our potential to produce the fruit of the Spirit is bound in our becoming healthy trees. We must grow and mature in our love of the Father. We find this by following the Son in his example of showing love and through yielding to the Holy Spirit.

Healthy fruit trees are the product of care, pruning, water, and sunshine. Good soil gives nutrients. Deep roots pull in water and vital sustenance. Cold and warmth work in harmony to trigger the growth instructions created in the tree. Flowers and pollination tell the fruit to grow. What was once a dry rough peach pit eventually yields beautiful sustaining peaches. They can go on to produce more and more peach trees.

As we grow, the process is similar. I need the right nutrients including prayer, Bible reading and application, time with other followers, and the care of the one who owns me. If we think we do not need any of these we are mistaken. In addition, the cold and warmth may be seen as good times and bad times.

In summary, we are designed to grow into fruit-producing trees among the people who so desperately need to see the fruit of the Spirit. The produce of other Christ-followers is intended to sustain us along the way just as we are to sustain others.

The Father has designed us to care for each other as an extension of his care. The difference between us and fruit trees is we have a choice. I can choose not to grow. I can produce things unhealthy for me. I can hoard what I produce and not share it with others. I can fail to be a strong fruitful tree. We must grow and produce, Dear Reader. I must have something good to share with others when I encounter them. In this, we can show the love of the Father as we are supposed to do.

Wishing you joy in the journey,

Mat 13:52 So Jesus said to them, “That is why every writer who has become a disciple of Christ’s rule of the universe is like a homeowner. He liberally hands out new and old things from his great treasure store.”

Every human story is part of the great story that leads to the Father getting everything back to Good.
