Sometimes I get really anxious about life. I tend to rush and try to make things happen because I have a personal timetable I must adhere to. Too often, we measure our success by what we produce—but what if our actions are premature?
Every person on this earth has a God given purpose; we are put on Earth to produce fruit. I’ve had the pleasure of visiting a fruit farm and picked delicious fruit. I also happened to pick an apple that hadn’t ripened yet; it was bitter and sour.
Similar to fruit, our lives are best fulfilled when we’re ripe and ready. This of course, requires us to be patient and committed to the process. So learn from me and don’t try to rush things. You want the best of you served to the world!
