By Their Fruits You Shall Know Them...
This Scripture has been coming into my mind lately because of an oddity I wanted to share with you. The tree pictured here is a dwarf apple tree that was planted on the campgrounds maybe 10-12 years ago and for the first few years, we didn't have any apples or very few. Then about 5 years ago we started having a nice crop of apples but this year it really outdid itself. We've picked over 1,100 apples (many as big as softballs) from it plus we lost over 300 falling on the ground and being ruined before we could get them all picked. 1,400 apples from this one little tree!! And the great thing about it, is that refrigerated, they will last until next August or September!! I smell a lot of apple pies and desserts in the camp's future!
Of course, we can make a spiritual connotation from this phenomenon… children may feel young and insignificant but don't give up, you can still be a great witness and bear lots of fruit!!! That's what WCCSC is here for, to plant seeds, nurture, and help children grow in Christ so that someday, they may too bear lots of fruit!!
