THOUGHT: Blame yourself if you have no branches of leaves; don’t accuse the sun of partiality.
CHALLENGE: Try not to look at other’s lives and question why they seem to be richer and bear more fruit than your own. Let the sun (Son) remind you of the warmth and energy that God has provided within you. Find a way for it to inspire your growth today.
REFERENCE: “It had been planted in good soil by abundant water so that it would produce branches, bear fruit and become a splendid vine.’”
