SON SHINE 477: ONE
Its luxuriant leaves and rapid spread had turned the mango tree into a nuisance, its planter?s patience having been stretched beyond the time limit this special breed was expected to have produced fruit. As the worker proceeded to totally cut off the plant, he noticed that the tree was not fruitless after all. Under its thick foliage was one fruit no one could otherwise have seen. That saved the plant and gave it a second life beyond the sentence that could have eliminated it forever.
? Be not afraid, ye beasts of the field: for the pastures of the wilderness do spring, for the tree beareth her fruit, the fig tree and the vine do yield their strength.? ? Joel 2: 22 (KJV)
You are not barren;
Let the Son shine in your heart daily.
