Jesus said to his disciples, “Amen, amen, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains just a grain of wheat; but if it dies, it produces much fruit. Whoever loves his life loses it, and whoever hates his life in this world will preserve it for eternal life. Whoever serves me must follow me, and where I am, there also will my servant be. The Father will honor whoever serves me” (John 12: 24-26).
Only the humble give fruit by serving. A humble person is like a beautiful fruit tree full of delicious fruit ready for others to pick and enjoy. The proud and selfish person is like a tree full of sour fruit. They keep all the good for themselves and don’t care about giving others something good.
Lord Jesus, I am weak and selfish at times but I want to change. Help me.
