We all start out as a seed that matures in the womb. Over time the seed produces a new life that will take root of its own. Not all trees mature in the same timing for each tree has its own season. Now the fruit of the tree teaches us a wise lesson, for the juice of the ripe apple is the same that was in the green fruit but with sun- light and sun- heat.
As we begin to mature with Christ we can find that our lives are like that of a tree that is to produce fruit. For our life is to grow in the light of wisdom and softened by the heat of love. The most important factor to understand in our maturity is that we each mature in our own time and it is our responsibility to love one another. Learning to mature with Christ day by day is an awesome experience for we can taste the juice of the fruit getting better and better each day…Amen
