John 15:7-8

Early in the summer I was in the White Mountain Wilderness near Ruidoso, NM. I noticed a large tree that leaned as it grew over the decades. It reminded me of a fruit tree in the backyard where I grew up. The pear tree leaned as it grew through the years persevering the south winds. However, it was deeply rooted and bore fruit every year. Success is the ability to persevere under stress and crisis. If we are deeply rooted in Christ, we can withstand the difficult days that may come our way and bear fruit so others may see the glory of Christ in us! John 15: 7-8
