“Every tree that does not bear good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire.”

This concept from Matthew 7:19-20 seems rather harsh and deserves some attention.

From a woman’s perspective, the feminine nature is firstly to bring life out of her womb.

“The woman’s soul,” says Saint Edith Stein, “is fashioned as a shelter in which other souls may unfold.”

Men also have an important role in calling women to live fruitfully.  From their seed bears the gifts of righteousness and protection for mothers and their children.

Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him.”

–Psalm 127:3

Thank you Lord for calling men and women to live fruitfully in building the Body of Christ on earth.
