You have planted the seed of an invitation
and You wait for each of us
to bear the fruit of Your love.
Blessed by the promise
even when we fail,
You prune, tend and nourish,
that glimpses of Your kingdom
might be caught in the life we exhibit.
As we share our gifts and resources
enable us to be willing to be patient
for Your fruit to grow in the lives of others
as we long for Your blessing
in all life.
