Roots and Branches

The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree…. 
Have you ever noticed the fruit produced tends to depend on the health of the tree? 
Trees that are given ample water and live in well maintained soil produce the best fruit. 
Trees that get little water and are in not so fertile soil don’t produce much fruit and the fruit that is produced usually does not compare in quality to a healthier tree. If you think about it, our lives are the same way. 

When we are connected to a healthy, positive, and nurturing spiritual, emotional, and physical environment, we tend to be healthy for ourselves and others. 
When our surroundings are full of negativity and all kinds of chaos, we struggle to receive the spiritual food needed to be healthy…
The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree! 
How fertile is your environment?.. 
Check your experience… 

“His roots grasped a new soil.” Big Book pg. 12 

Lord, let us surround ourselves with a fertile environment filled with love, grace, and growth, AMEN. 

“I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit.” John 15:5 
Have a blessed day Y’all!
