“…that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him: bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; being strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy; ” Colossians 1:9-11
As we drive into our car park, we will be greeted by a row of fruit trees. They all look alike in terms of height and size but there was one which caught my attention because of the numerous fruits hung on it. How can this jackfruit tree be so fruitful? This tree stood out amongst the rest in the same vicinity. Not because of it’s physical appearance (cos all the other trees look green and healthy too) but it was the number of fruits it bore. I looked at the tree and I told God, I want my children to be as such – fruitful! That, they will grow in spiritual wisdom, knowing their destiny in Christ; walk confidently and faithfully in it. And be fruitful! Amen.
