Song of Solomon: Fountain 27 Apr 2020
12 She is a garden enclosed, my sister, my promised bride;
a garden enclosed, a sealed fountain.
13 Your shoots form an orchard of pomegranate trees,
bearing most exquisite fruit:
14 nard and saffron, calamus and cinnamon,
with all the incense-bearing trees;
myrrh and aloes, with then subtlest odours.
15 Fountain of the garden, well of living water,
streams flowing down from Lebanon!
Kingdom Community: A Fountain
The community loved by God is supposed to be a garden with a fountain of living water. This morning I went out to take a picture of a nearby fountain. Today there was no water. Perhaps because of maintenance works. Fortunately Google maps could provide me with a picture of the missing water.
Nowadays in the Netherlands, I as a Catholic, do not find it easy to be a fountain of living water. Nevertheless ... God expects us (not just me alone) to be a fountain. It is our purpose. A garden should be a place where it is pleasant to remain. A garden is a place of abundant fruits. I'd love to be a part of such a garden.
