- THE PALM TREE STORY
Tgif dear followers, today like this, is not for come and buy coconut oil and flour ooo (but I am still taking orders sha😂). I want to tell y'all a true story. If you follow my personal page @sharonee.official
, you'd see I am an ardent writer who loves to tell stories and draw wisdom from my day to day life😉, so its spilling over here😀. Ok, I was on the farm one day with my Dad at the start of a sowing season. We had gone with an old man who worked in an agricultural institute and knew well about agric and crops.
We had asked about what crop to plant and he gave a lot of suggestions. Then my father asked how about palm tree?
Then the man advised us not to plant palm trees all over that large expanse of land, if it wasn't for commercial reasons. Why?
He said first it takes time to grow to maturity and then when it grows and begins to produce coconuts, as the coconuts are plucked, the tree would grow taller, yet producing more fruits. He was afraid it would grow so high we might not be able to access the fruits anymore. That last part struck me. So you mean plucking it fruits makes it grow taller? Yes it does. Wow!
Applied to real life......When your life produces fruits that benefit people, it never diminishes you, it makes you grow higher just like the palm tree. It might have taken you time to develop yourself to the point where you became so valuable, just as it takes the palm tree sometime to grow, but never feel bad people are "plucking from you" even if they don't give back to you.
Nobody who plucks from the palm tree is taller than the palm tree. It is because you are in a place higher than where they are probably in knowledge, grace, resources or whatever, that they can come and enjoy your fruit. It is a privilege. Live as a blessing to humanity and you will go higher.
