Those things which bear the beauty marks of time. They grow better with age. They tell beautiful stories of their days. Speak to weathered storms, dust ups of life and bumps in the rocky road.
We are an impetuous people, seeking the shiny and new. Chopping down the old.
That amazing gardner in Luke 13:6-9. “The Gardner said, ‘Let’s give it another year. I’ll dig around it and fertilize….'” referring to the fig tree which wasn’t bearing fruit.
What amazing grace we are given.
What amazing love and care and patience are poured out on us.
“Hallelujah! Thank GOD! And why? Because he’s good, because his love lasts.” –Psalm 106
Am I offering that same forgiveness given me. Or am I chopping others down?
