Last year, I planted fruit trees; orange, lemon, lime, pomegranate, guava, mango, mulberry, pecan, and Barbados cherry. I’ve gotten some fruit from a few of them, but they are still small trees that are not very sturdy. I’ve noted their blooms and watched as they add fruit that will be ready later this year. Though it’s a bit disappointing, I understand that because they are still young, the amount of fruit is probably consistent with their size because their branches are not strong enough to hold an abundance; however, they are producing an amount compatible with their size. My goal is to stay on a feeding schedule and boost their fertilizer intake to help them become strong and fight off insects and intruders trying to leach off them; maybe my crop will increase next year.
Does this story make you think of the fruit you produce? God wrote stories into his creation; we must learn how to read them. If you want to produce fruit, you need to strengthen your armor by feasting on the Word of God, increasing your knowledge and wisdom; only then can you expect to create a generous crop.
that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, Ephesians 3:16
