The Fruit of Suffering
SEPTEMBER 26, 2023
The fruit that comes from a wounded tree is often the best fruit around.
Did you know that a farmer will sometimes take an ax to an apple tree that isn’t producing apples and create a gaping wound?
The next growing season, that apple tree will almost always produce fruit. One could call that, I suppose, the fruit of suffering.
Bible talks about that too. When it hurts, it could be that God is planning a very good harvest. I hate it, cuss and spit and complain about it, but the fruit that comes from a wounded tree is often the best fruit around.
I’m Steve Brown. You think about that.
