It is amazing the things you can learn by walking around a city. While walking around southern California a few years ago, I was surprised to see oranges just laying all over the place. You actually had to watch where you were walking on the sidewalk because of all the oranges. This speckling of oranges was awesome yet strange. I was concerned about the waste of so much good citrus and asked my friend about it. He shrugged his shoulders and said that there was just too many for the people to eat. WHAT! Too many oranges! Being the entrepreneur that I was, I asked him why they didn’t sell them? He said, that they weren’t a store. Hmmm…
What Did I Learn?
I learned that the orange trees in those peoples yards did what healthy orange trees do, make oranges. They made them without anyone thinking about them making them. They made oranges whether or not anyone was going to eat them. The oranges all over the sidewalks were the fruit of the law of life in the orange tree. I learned that the orange itself is not really the supply, it was the fruit of the supply.
Law of LIFE
The law of life operates to draw in through the roots, minerals, substances, elements of air, water, and sunshine which it then transforms into sap which is drawn up through the trunk of the tree and distributed through the branches and finally sent into expression as blossoms. In due time, this law transforms the blossoms into a little green marble and this becomes a full grown orange. The orange is the result or effect of the operation of the law acting in, through, and AS the orange tree. As long as the law is present we will have oranges! The orange of itself cannot produce another orange. I learned the law of life and supply as well as the fruit of the supply, which is the orange.
The GOOD PART!!!
Within you and within me, there is also a law in operation, the law of life. Our awareness of the presence of this law is our supply. Money and things necessary for our daily living are the effects of the consciousness of the activity of the law within. This understanding enables us to take no thought of the things of the outer world and abide in the consciousness of the law.
Our Supply Comes From LIFE
Let us learn to look to the orange tree and rejoice at the proof of the presence of God’s love for His creation. Let us watch the sparrows and note how confidently they trust this law.
FREE From Worry About Dollar$
Let us agree now to see that just as we need take no thought for oranges as long as we have the source or supply which is continually producing fruit for us, so we need no longer take thought about dollars. Let us learn to think of dollars, as we do of leaves on a tree or oranges, as the natural and inevitable result of the law active within. There is truly no need to worry even when the tree seems to be bare, as long as we are conscious of the truth that the law is even now operating within to bring forth fruit after its own kind. Regardless of the state of our finances at any given moment, let us not be concerned or worried because we now know that the law acting in, through, and AS our consciousness is at work within us, when we are asleep as well as when we are awake, to provide all those added things.
When you are conscious of the law of life you will be so much more productive. Productivity will be the natural fruit of abiding in the source of life. Your supply is God and the labor of your hands within everyday life is the fruit of operating in the law of life!
ORANGES WILL HANG ALL OVER YOU!
This is the beauty of living in Christ, producing fruit for all the world around you to enjoy. You are tapped into the greatest supplier of all the ages and can demonstrate His love by feeding the masses from this simple law of life that is abiding in all of us. Jesus demonstrated this law of life many times in his earthly ministry. You and I also will glorify God by demonstrating to the need of the needy, utilizing this law of life within!
Much Love, Many Blessings, and Great Favor,
