Called to Fruitfulness

I have a small vegetable garden in my backyard. I grow veggies and spices: basil, rosemary, lemon grass, spring onions, ginger and pandan leaves. My favorite ones are those that bear fruit: bitter gourd, bell pepper, hot chili, and tomato. My yard is also blessed with some fruit bearing trees: banana, rose apple (macopa), and mango.

My goal for each of my plant is to bloom and/or bear fruit. That's it! I don't plant to see it die. Same with our Maker. He is after the fruit of our lives. We don't live just to be alive. We are called to fruitfulness.

Life without love is like a tree without blossoms or fruit.
