The Lemon Tree

Sometimes a book intended to teach children
teaches the adults in the room just as much.
Such is the case with

A standout statement
easy to remember:

Move forward with what must be done while maintaining hope and faith for a brighter tomorrow.
A brighter tomorrow based upon the investments made in today.

Investments are scary.
Reading Katie's account,
found on page 47 of "Katie and The Lemon Tree",
shows this well:

"I was so afraid..."

"Of what, Katie?"

"To use the money. I was afraid we would never put it back."

Seeing the monies you have put all-in towards a hoped for outcome of betterment
takes courage
but is a parable put forth in the Bible
on how to capitalize on what's been given to you.

"You have to use it to get more, Katie. You have to invest it. That's a biblical principle."

"A biblical principle!" Katie was amazed. "But we might have lost it!"

"That's exactly what happened to the man who saved it. He lost it!"

Invest and find your abundance!

For Katie this meant 17 years of faithfulness
before her lemon tree bore fruit
and her family abroad (in Germany) was able to join her in America.
