"Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree."
There is popular discussion about the viability of the church in America, particularly as new generations flee.
The present drought often discourages us from planting. "It will never take." "It's too much work." "It's not worth it."
Thank God that someone planted in a previous day. Thank God for investments made in stormy hours. Thank God for fathers and mothers in the faith.
Today is our orchard. Now is our time. Mature trees must not stand alone. We are farmers of supernatural fields. We yearn for more trees and more fruit.
God, give us plenty. Give us prolific plenty.
