To protect the fig tree from birds
Every Father and Mother want to protect their child like the apple of Their eye. It is no different with God. I give thanks to God Elohim for allowing me to share this fragrance and giving me a great realization. Around this time last year, there was a fig tree in the garden of the house my family had moved into. At that time, the tree had a lot of fruit on its branches because it was the season for figs. As the figs began to grow ripe, emitting a sweet smell, I realized that there were some unwelcomed guests. Every day, Brown-eared Bulbul birds perched down on the fig tree and enjoyed the figs to their hearts’ content.
Father and Mother protect our souls
It was the same, this year. One Sunday morning, at the sound of the birds’ chirping I hurriedly went out mainly due to the fact that I feared they would eat all the figs. Brown-eared Bulbul birds were pecking at and eating the figs which had not even grown ripe yet. Bringing out a fly swatter, I drove them away. The next day too, they were eating the figs, making chirping noises. I had had enough. So my husband and I covered each and every single fruit some fly net. We also fixed them securely with clothespins.
Since then, although the birds came to the fig tree for a couple of days, however after that, they no longer came. Probably because they realized that they could not eat the fruit. Now the figs are growing ripe with any problems. Although a fig tree produces sweet and delicious fruit, without the owner’s labor to protect them, no fruit is safe. I’ve realized how thankful it is to have Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother protect us like the apple of Their eye. God the Father and God the Mother even forget Their sleep and rest to protect us. Father and Mother are the owners of our souls. Since Christ Ahnsahnghong and God the Mother keep us safe, I want to grow up and become a good fruit that pleases God with the joy of harvest.
