The Law of Seasons
A life grows from season to season. Each season amounts to a process of rebirth, without which, life cannot be permitted to move in to the next phase of life. And each season, the way a life is provided for changes.
Psm 1:1-3 [NIV] 1Blessed is the man
who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked
or stand in the way of sinners
or sit in the seat of mockers.
2But his delight is in the law of the LORD,
and on his law he meditates day and night.
3He is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither.
Whatever he does prospers.
Here, it’s mentioned that a righteous man’s life is like a fruitful tree. It takes diverse seasons for a tree to bear fruit. However, the passage is not talking about the natural life, but rather the spiritual life of a person.
1 Pet 1:23 [NIV] 23For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God. ….
1 Pet 2:2-3 [NIV] 2Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, 3now that you have tasted that the Lord is good.
1 Cor 3:1-3 [NIV] 1Brothers, I could not address you as spiritual but as worldly—mere infants in Christ. 2I gave you milk, not solid food, for you were not yet ready for it. Indeed, you are still not ready. 3You are still worldly. For since there is jealousy and quarreling among you, are you not worldly? Are you not acting like mere men?
