Olives 12 Mar 2019
Good olives save lives
That is what I read during lunchtime in the restaurant of the HTC Campus where I work.
Instantly I found myself wondering:
What do good Christians produce? and
What do good Catholics produce?. For it is written in the bible:
Good trees produce good fruits.
Olives produce the famous olive oil. And oil reminds to the Holy Spirit.
It is easy to raise questions ...
What good does my life bring forth?
More than I know and less than I like.
I hope that my life also spreads some of God's spirit.
It is not my legalistic duty that brings forth good fruits.
Fruits are in my opinion good fruits when they benefit my fellow people. Of course, it is as well a good fruit when my character improves.
