There is a figure of speech where the tree that bears no fruit is evocative of the moral person who bears no spiritual fruit. We are all created for a mission: to be a conduit of divine grace into the world. Every single one of us has this mission.
The language of life helps us listen to what is important and the right voice. When we are planted in God—think of Jesus’ image of the vine and the branches—we are meant to bring forth the fruits of love, peace, compassion, justice, and nonviolence.
Thank you, Lord, for showing me mission living the truth and the way to life.
