This got me to thinking...fruitful tree.. bowing...Here is another Spiritual application from a garden. When we are planted in the Lord, if we are fruitful, we are bowing in humility before the Lord.
Then I saw another application: If I left my little tree without support it would probably snap off at some point. I had Ethan put the fencepost in next to the tree so I could tie the tree to it to help it stand.
Then I had to pull the fruit from the main branch so it would stand upright. Now that it has support, it will grow upright.
May he send you help from the sanctuary and grant you support from Zion. Psalm 20:2
I'm sure there are many more applications from this little adventure in the garden if I were to spend more time on it...any come to your mind?
